Testimonials from our Community

CASH Campaign of Maryland regularly uses CBA content for both staff training and individual facing workshops. In addition, CBA staff routinely answer more in-depth questions that arise from these trainings/classes to clarify the nuances in the credit industry. From consumer credit to small business credit, CBA is the thought leader, top advocate, and resource.

Sue Rogan
CASH Campaign of Maryland

We originally joined to obtain discounted credit reports for our clients, but we have found the workshops and trainings very useful to our staff. CBA has also been a source of grants for us- something we did not expect; it proactively approached us and encouraged us to apply for funding on more than one occasion.   It has been very helpful to us in networking with other colleagues in the field, in building our staff capacity and in supporting our efforts to build credit and expand inclusion for our clients.

CBA has been invaluable in creating access to companies that as a nonprofit, we would have never be able to otherwise.

Kim Pentico
National Network To End Domestic Violence (NNEDV)

My organization works with many new immigrant first time borrowers who have no credit history whatsoever. Our relationship with Credit Builders Alliance gives these first time borrowers an opportunity to develop credit worthiness where otherwise it seemed unattainable.

Tobe Tsuchiya
BOC Network

Working with CBA has allowed us to report over 1500 loans to the credit bureaus. Last time I checked about 96% were reporting as an account in good standing.

Logan Jones
Work Life Partnership

I believe that this partnership taught us so much about how credit is an asset and helped us evaluate how our financial empowerment programming could grow and become more robust in our efforts to support residents. We believe that financial equity begins with our own commitment to well rounded programs that offer multifaceted support for families to make financial gains and progress. Without this training, we would have taken much longer to fully develop well rounded financial educational programming and support. We learned a great deal about a field myself, and my team was not as knowledgeable as we needed to be to offer fully comprehensive supportive services to our residents.

Thanks for all that you all do. It's been such a benefit to be a member and engage in the training I've taken over the last couple of years, especially Master Trainer last year. We are seeing huge gains for our community as a result of you and your team's work!

Breanne Armbrust
The Neighborhood Resource Center of Greater Fulton (NRC Fulton)

CBA Credit Reporting has been an incredible tool for our organization. As a small lender, we do not have the resources to be a regular reporter and we would not be able to report, respond to disputes and or manage special situations that we have encountered; CBA has provided us with the support that we need and the training to understand how to proceed, every step of the way.

Marco F. Landoni
Center for Energy and Environment

CBA is helping my CDFI increase consumer lending and credit building capacity. This is crucial because CODI is a non profit focused on fighting poverty. With CBA's help we are now able to start stepping out of our comfort zone to provide even greater services to our rural and low income community. Thank you!

Adam Duckett
Chautauqua Opportunities for Development, Inc.

The CBA Fund loan was so attractive because of its low interest, and it was an amount we could manage as a just-starting CDFI. With CBA, we didn’t just get funding; we got training in the consumer loan product, advice on how to develop our program, and even what to ask loan recipients.

Yurubi Ramirez
Fresno Area Hispanic Foundation (FAHF)

CBA pioneered the reporting of data to the major credit bureaus from small organizations and became one of the first impactful organizations to promote and create situations where consumers can build a complete credit report.

Tony Hadley

We have been able to use the credit building training in our financial education classes. We were able to help a potential homebuyer increase his credit score and close on his property.
