Growing up, I watched my closest friend’s family break under the weight of a heavy financial burden. I sat helpless as the smart and ambitious person I knew best in this world, turned to dangerous coping mechanisms in the wake of his parent’s divorce. It was in this moment, decades ago, when I knew I had to do something to help.
Throughout my career, I’ve seen well-paid people struggle with finances and fall into a cycle of debt. I have witnessed co-workers and friends take out high-risk payday loans and advances because they were made to believe it was their only option. I’ve watched more families crumble, lives destroyed, and relationships end, all because of money.
While I wasn’t able to help my friend all those years ago, I founded Stately Credit so others could safely get the financial support and education they need. Our salary-linked loan program is a no-cost benefit to employers and allows American employees to access safe and affordable loans without relying on high interest credit cards, dipping into retirement funds early, or dangerous payday loans.
As much as I wish that this type of service was available decades ago, I’m proud that Stately Credit is able to help countless individuals, families, and businesses moving forward.
