We're helping thousands of people build a strong financial future

Self is helping thousands of people begin their financial journey with a credit builder account. We understand that building a financial foundation is a daunting task for most people, so we're dedicated to building a product that will help our customers move two steps in the right direction.

Technology + Honesty + You

We believe strongly that a customer's success is tied to a variety of factors beyond just a financial product. We treat our customers the way we would like to be treated — and we're striving for a fanatical customer experience through honesty, great technology, and a great team dedicated to help you succeed.

Building Self

We are hardworking, passionate, financial geeks. Building credit and building savings used to be mutually exclusive goals. With Self, we've created a responsible way for people to build credit and savings at the same time.
