Celebrate (Financial) Independence Day

Fri, 2017-06-30 12:29

July 4th is not only a day to celebrate American independence but also to celebrate financial independence for our 90,000 members! Since Grameen America began in 2008, we have aspired to create a more financially inclusive America for low-income women entrepreneurs. We have invested over $640 million in our members who have gone on to create thriving small business. We are proud that our members are a group of dedicated entrepreneurs who now have an average credit score of 640 and an accumulated savings of over $5.9 million.

Throughout 12 cities across the U.S, Grameen America has empowered our members with the necessary financial tools, knowledge, and support they need to create better lives for themselves, their families, and their communities.
