We're helping thousands of people build a strong financial future

Self Lender is helping thousands of people begin their financial journey with a credit builder account. We understand that building a financial foundation is a daunting task for most people, so we're dedicated to building a product that will help our customers move two steps in the right direction.

Technology + Honesty + You

We believe strongly that a customer's success is tied to a variety of factors beyond just a financial product. We treat our customers the way we would like to be treated — and we're striving for a fanatical customer experience through honesty, great technology, and a great team dedicated to help you succeed.

Building Self Lender

We are hardworking, passionate, financial geeks. Building credit and building savings used to be mutually exclusive goals. With Self Lender, we've created a responsible way for people to build credit and savings at the same time.
