Credit Building through Micro-Lending
What is the Independence Project?
The Independence Project, a credit building program of The National Network To End Domestic Violence (NNEDV), was established in partnership with Verizon and with seed funding from Thirty-One Gifts.
Through the Independence Project, advocates and local domestic violence programs across the nation can support survivors of domestic violence in improving their credit scores through micro-lending.
