Immigrant Traditions into Credit Scores

While growing up in California, José Quiñonez and his five siblings came together to overcome the financial challenges that come with not having access to credit as a former undocumented immigrant.

Quiñonez is now using his personal experience to help immigrant and low income communities by turning the Latino tradition of tandas, or community lending circles, into an opportunity for immigrants to develop a credit score through his organization MAF (Mission Asset Fund).
