What is Self?
Self is a financial technology company with a mission to help people build credit, particularly those who are new to credit or who might not have access to traditional financial products.
Right now, we do this through offering our Credit Builder Account, which is an installment loan that enables people to build positive payment history (if they make their monthly payment on time) while they save money for a rainy day.
Here’s how it works:
Apply for a loan that’s held by our bank partners. Your money is secured and protected in a bank account.1
Pay off the loan in 12-24 months.* You can choose a repayment plan that fits your budget.
Each payment builds credit history and adds to your savings.1 Your payments are reported to all three credit bureaus.
Watch the 1-minute video below for a brief explanation of how the Self Credit Builder Account works.
*Sample products are $25 monthly loan payment at a $526 loan amount with a $15 administration fee, 24 month term and 15.52% Annual Percentage Rate; $48 monthly loan payment at a $545 loan amount with a $15 administration fee, 12 month term and 15.65% Annual Percentage Rate; $89 monthly loan payment at a $1000 loan amount with a $15 administration fee, 12 month term and 15.21% Annual Percentage Rate; $150 monthly loan payment at a $1700 loan amount with a $15 administration fee, 12 month term and 12.37% Annual Percentage Rate.
