A widespread use of credit scores began in the 1980s. Like other things from the ‘80s—leg warmers, VHS tapes, and hair bands—the way we build credit has become outdated.
Right now, Americans must have credit to get credit. This paradox simply doesn’t make sense. StellarFi modernizes credit-building by removing unnecessary hurdles and making credit radically accessible.
Credit scores are statistically lower among marginalized groups, such as LGBTQ communities, BIPOC Americans, low-income individuals, people with disabilities, and immigrants.
These score disparities are difficult to overcome through traditional credit-building methods. StellarFi offers a path to credit access using something we all have....bills.
Our partner, the National Foundation for Credit Counseling (NFCC), is a financial counseling organization serviced by thousands of accredited financial advisors nationwide, with the mission to help Americans gain control over their finances. As a result of our partnership, all StellarFi members have free access to one-on-one credit counseling from the NFCC.
