Impacting the Credit Crisis in the North Omaha Community
It is inevitable that the majority of individuals and small business entrepreneurs in low-moderate income communities are compressed by the burden of poor credit and high fees. Borrowing options are limited and understanding how to build and maintain good credit is ambiguous. People that struggle with credit believe that they should avoid credit all together.
Members of the Urban Financial Services Coalition Omaha Chapter (UFSCOC) will launch a credit campaign using unique strategies to raise awareness of the credit problem in North Omaha while providing learning opportunities of how to build and improve credit scores that will ultimately enhances the quality of life for low-moderate income families and small business owners in the community at large.
