Programs

Grameen America offers micro-loans and savings products through partnerships with local banks in the Omaha, Nebraska and New York City areas. Each borrower is given the opportunity to open a no-fee no-minimum-balance savings account. We also partner with Experian, a national credit-reporting agency to help borrowers establish credit through our credit score establishment program where borrowers with no prior credit history have achieved average scores of 640 after just 6 months with GA.
