For unbanked and underbanked borrowers, ncome supports, budgeting guidance, and additional savings will not entirely fill the need that credit satisfies.

Third, credit can facilitate an investment or purchase that provides the foundation for other wealth-building activities. To meet these goals, small-dollar, short-term credit must be high quality. It must be marketed transparently and priced fairly.
