Fig Loans Reviews
Description Fig Loans
The original Fig personal loan started as a collaboration between Fig and United Way THRIVE in Houston. On October 14, 2014, we cold called 50 nonprofit organizations to learn more about how online payday loans in Texas affect people and communities. We wanted to speak to financial coaches who had first-hand experience working with payday loan customers. The only person to take our call was Jackie at United Way of Greater Houston and the rest is history!
We used this time to define the Fig Loan to be, in every way, a better loan for customers and communities. On March 18th of 2015, we presented the original Fig Loan to over 80 members of the THRIVE collaborative and asked if anyone would be willing to help us pilot this concept.
