The event is part of FICO’s “Score A Better Future” program, which focuses on helping consumers improve their understanding of their credit and overall financial health. Consumers will learn from credit experts what the key ingredients are that make up the FICO Score, and the myths and facts about FICO Scores, which are used in more than 90 percent of lending decisions (Mercator Advisory Group Analyst Report 2018).
“Financial literacy is an invaluable asset that enables financial success. Not every member of our community has had the opportunity to acquire these skills, which is why programs like “Score A Better Future” are a great benefit to the people of Kansas City. This program represents an opportunity for all who attend to learn how to better navigate the forces that influence their financial wellbeing,” said Congressman Cleaver II.
FICO has partnered with Operation HOPE to provide attendees with the opportunity to make appointments for free one-on-one credit coaching from non-profit financial well-being coaches to help attendees develop a plan to address their financial goals.
