Where is Curu going...

Curu’s vision is to completely eliminate rejection from credit-based decisions by replacing the traditional and disheartening “rejection letter” with an approval dashboard.

We plan on doing this by supporting underrepresented credit applicants who are motivated to become more financially literate and demonstrate improved borrower characteristics while working with banks and lenders to improve their overall lending experience.
