About Progreso Financiero
Progreso Financiero ( www.progressfin.com ) aims to be the partner of choice to the 23 million under banked Hispanics in the United States who need access to responsible and empowering financial products and services. Unlike mainstream institutions, Progreso Financiero provides loans without collateral to clients who lack credit history by using its sophisticated risk-scoring system that emphasizes a client's true capacity to afford a loan. Progreso Financiero engages with customers in their neighborhoods, in their language, and with familiar faces from the community to build relationships of trust that lead to a lifetime of growth and prosperity.
Progreso Financiero is a for-profit institution that believes in the moral collateral of its clients and is committed to providing opportunities to help its clients achieve their dreams. Since its founding in 2005, the company has made more than 350,000 loans, extending $400 million in capital to underserved Hispanic families through more than 70 locations across California and Texas and helping improve credit scores for more than 87 percent of its loan customers. We strongly believe in building a great business while also achieving social good, and seek to hire people who share our values.
