Bettering the financial health of every American: Possible Finance

“Together, we improve your financial health.”

Financial wellness refers to the “overall financial health of an individual” and is sometimes used interchangeably with financial well-being. Employee financial wellness programs (FWPs) are work-placed programs that both “access and support” the financial wellness of employees.

Financial wellness concerns the management of the financial health of an individual, supporting a balance between their short-term and long-term financial needs. Financial wellness programs work through employers supporting their employees’ goals with a program that provides them with the "ability to track their progress and accomplishments, factoring in their goals. From the perspective of employees, financial wellness programs are successful if they have "minimal financial stress; a strong financial foundation (little or no debt, an emergency savings fund and are living below their means); and a plan they are following that puts them on track to meet future financial goals."

One such company which is a pioneer in the field of financial wellness and management is Possible Finance.

Possible Finance is a technology company that empowers everyday Americans to achieve financial wellbeing. To start, the company offers affordable short-term credit to help customers avoid harmful bank overdraft fees and payday loans while also building a credit history. Through a mobile app, Possible Finance provides a friendlier alternative to payday loans that’s less expensive, easier to repay, and repairs credit. Applying takes under a minute and anyone can apply since there is no credit check. All of this is made possible through its technology and data. Possible Finance has built a unique credit assessment model that leverages novel data sources to effectively stratify risk for credit-challenged individuals. The firm quotes, “We meet our customer’s immediate financial needs today, and we guide them towards a better tomorrow as we improve their financial well-being. The users can receive funds instantly regardless of existing credit history.”

They provide affordable short-term loans that help build credit history & improve long-term financial health. Unlike bank overdraft fees, payroll advance apps, or payday loans, one can pay back over installments across multiple paychecks and reschedule payments all from within the app. They report to all major credit bureaus (TransUnion, Equifax, and Experian) to help their customers build a credit history.
