BuildCredit Loan is a turnkey solution for financial institutions, digital brands and fintechs to provide customers with the ability to build and grow their credit score. Funds lent are held as collateral and payments are reported to credit bureaus in the form of an installment account. When the loan is repaid, the loan proceeds are returned to the customer or can be paid into other product offerings offered by Array customers, such as a secured card or a new account.
“Credit enhancement loans are rapidly gaining popularity, but considerable internal development time and resources have prevented many banks and digital brands from moving forward,” said Darryl Eaton, CEO of Array. “BuildCredit Loan is an ideal solution for many businesses as they can rely on the expertise of BuildCredit and Array to manage infrastructure, compliance and service as the business focuses on providing a seamless digital experience. and extending the value it delivers to its customers.”
When BuildCredit Loan is integrated, customers can enroll in the digital experience, set up automatic payments, and accumulate savings. When the customer makes payments on time, they can establish a positive credit history while continuing to make installment payments over time. For example, a borrower with no existing debt who has a credit score of 560 may see up to 60 points of increase (source: Practitioner’s Guide to Targeting Credit Enhancement Loans, 2020).

It’s a compelling alternative to high interest loan products and BuildCredit Loan takes most of the complexity out of the offering as we offer it as an end-to-end service.
