What we do

We're redesigning the way low income families interact with the monolithic financial system.

Think plain English vs. legalese, scalable UI vs. expensive call centers and predictive analytics vs. FICO based underwriting.

Our Products

We believe that with the right opportunity, low income families can achieve the American dream: good jobs with good wages, safe and affordable housing, financial stability and ultimately, success for  the next generation. 

Since financial stability anchors each of these tenets, our current focus is eradicating predatory financial systems-- a $320 billion dollar industry in the U.S. that affects over 1/2 of all Americans.

Our  Team

Everyone on our team is driven by our passion for helping communities become financially healthy. 

Our team is not from privileged backgrounds, we're where we are today because someone decided to give us, the underdog, an opportunity. We've dedicated ourselves to Fig because our customers are the underdogs of credit, written off by traditional credit scoring, and we're giving them an opportunity.
