For a long time, many of the American have believed that financial opportunities have access to all uniformity. The financial sector in the US is limited in access to African-Americans. This is evidenced by fewer new bank account openings due to no cash flow among the Hispanic people. As in new household data, 25% of them have no active banking statements and tend to seek other ways to fuel their financial status. The opportunity has been taken positively by financial entrepreneurs such as James Gutierrez.
James Gutierrez is an American entrepreneur, VC investor, and philanthropist who is more concerned with innovating financial solutions to disrupt the lending industry. He is the owner of FinTech and once served Oportun as their CEO between 2005 and 2012. As its CEO, James managed to help 500 million Hispanic communities to access loans. Since then, he has drawn his focus to financial equality among US citizens.
When the economy has deteriorated since the Pandemic, James Gutierrez has become an activist in campaigning for Minority Depository Institutions and Community Development Finance Institutions. These forums’ main goal is to provide financial services to those who do not have access to banking or loan opportunities. CDFIs and MDIs have emerged as lending leaders, making life easier for people during the pandemic.
Thanks to CDFIs and MDIs, James Gutierrez has created a smartphone app that provides insurance and banking solutions to people who aren’t well-versed in financial matters. The mobile forum’s goals include boosting financial stability, buying power, and creditworthiness. These two programs aim to teach students about finance, including what it is, how important it is, and why it is necessary.
FinTech, under James Gutierrez’s leadership goal, has been availing the finances to an under-banked society. It has offered its clients loans, financial management, and their knowledge of finances. The firm has also provided its customers to fuel their businesses during the pandemic. It has established a way to watch over the cash flow, lowering rates, and avail various loans.
