How This Fintech Helps Build Both Credit and Savings

Many people who struggle to build their credit score also lack a clear path to savings. Self set out to serve those consumers through financial technology that allows people to build credit and contribute to savings at the same time. 

Through BlackRock’s Emergency Savings Initiative (ESI), Self developed new messaging that put savings at its core. The fintech’s “Build Credit. Build Savings.” message connected credit building with savings habits, helping its customers build financial health for the long term.
