Survey: the consumers financial institutions are leaving behind

Lending decisions around housing, vehicles, and other services have long been based on a borrower's credit score or their ability to evidence regular employment — a formula that no longer fits our economy.

To shed light on this issue, Argyle surveyed 1,226 workers reporting 1099 earnings as either a primary (55.1%) or partial (44.9%) source of income. We learned about their experiences with lending institutions, barriers to financial access, and innovations that could change their lives for the better.
