2021 - Partnered with Equifax

Equifax partners with Kredit Academy as they see Kiddie Kredit’s model as a simple yet exciting way to educate and engage children on the importance of credit history and their financial health. It’s also aligned to Equifax’s vision of increasing financial inclusion and equity.

Kiddie Kredit focuses on taking what kids do every day - chores - and linking that to credit scores. Good behaviors around chores lead to good behaviors in building your credit score,” said Bev Anderson, previous President of Global Consumer Solutions.
