ABOUT OPORTUN

 

Based in Silicon Valley, Oportun (Nasdaq:OPRT) is dedicated to financial inclusion for the estimated 100 million people in the U.S. who are shut out of the financial mainstream because they don’t have a credit score or have been mis-scored by a traditional credit bureau. As a Community Development Financial Institution (CDFI), Oportun’s mission is to provide inclusive, affordable financial services that empower its customers to build a better future. 

 

Since our first loan in 2006, Oportun has made over 3.8 million loans totaling over $9 billion to customers across 12 states. Oportun’s customers have saved an estimated $1.7 billion in interest and fees compared to the alternatives typically available to them. Oportun has helped more than 860,000 people establish a credit history for the first time. 

 

Oportun was named one of Fast Company’s Most Innovative Companies in the World for 2020, a TIME Magazine 2018 Genius Company in recognition of its impact in helping to reinvent the future of lending. Oportun was recently named one of the Top Workplaces for 2019 and 2020 by the Bay Area News Group and recognized as the Best Consumer Lending Product by FinTech Breakthrough.
