Oportun is a mission-driven, technology-powered provider of inclusive, affordable financial services and a Community Development Financial Institution. We seek to serve the estimated 100 million people in the U.S. who are typically shut out of the financial mainstream because they don't have a credit score or have limited credit history. By lending money to hardworking individuals, Oportun helps them move forward in their lives, demonstrate their creditworthiness, and establish the credit history they need to access new opportunities. We were named one of TIME Magazine's 2018 Genius Companies for our innovative work providing over 2.9 million affordable small dollar loans that have saved customers an estimated $1.4 billion, according to a study commissioned by Oportun and conducted by the Center for Financial Services Innovation, a leading nonprofit authority on consumer financial health.
