18 Apr Supporting Financial Education and Lending Services in Mississippi
As many national organizations promote programs and services in support of Financial Literacy Month this April, CGI recognizes commitment-makers that are working to create a more inclusionary financial sector. To help combat poverty and create better access to fair credit, the Mississippi Center for Justice, a CGI America commitment-maker, is working to change the state’s current financial landscape by increasing access to financial literacy programs and mainstream banking services. Their Commitment to Action focuses on supporting a system with fair borrowing options that can grow family assets and benefit both individuals and the economy as a whole. Watch the video below to find out how, through this commitment, employers and leading financial institutions are fostering collaborative partnerships and implementing a strategy that will offer fair lending alternatives and credit building opportunities to Mississippians.
