The Power of Credit Building

December 21, 2017 @ 12 - 1 PM ET

1 CEU for AFCPE® Professionals
Open to AFCPE & FPA Members

A good credit history is crucial in today’s economy. Far more than just a number, a good credit score is a prerequisite for everyday financial services like a low-cost credit card, a bank account or a car loan. Credit building is a powerful financial capability strategy to help individuals take control of their financial lives. By engaging in credit building activities individuals can save money and also build assets. Credit Builders Alliance (CBA) serves as a unique and vital bridge between financial capability practitioners, coaches and counselors, and the credit reporting industry. Through this support, CBA helps people and small businesses who are outside the financial mainstream build credit to achieve their goals and enjoy financial security.

In this webinar, we will explore how building good credit can increase financial stability and help your clients achieve both long and short terms goals. You will gain an understanding of how credit works and what steps can be taken to improve credit scores. Finally, we will help you learn how to identify what credit building tools and resources may be available to you locally and through participation in CBA’s Credit Building community.
