August 2022 Update

By Kaitlyn Szabo September 2, 2022

“I feel like I got a master’s degree in predatory lending!”

Can you believe it has been six months since Anne stepped into the Executive Director role?! Since February, she jumped right into the work and has been busy helping us to grow internally, build new partnerships, and spread the word about our program. For example, she recently joined The BIGCast, a fintech podcast, to discuss how Exodus Lending creates a bridge from economic exploitation to safe, wealth-building opportunities. Check out the podcast episode, “Exodus from the Debt Trap” (Anne’s conversation starts at around the 9:25 mark).

You can also check out their previous episode, “Payday Lenders – Purely Evil, or Filling a Market Need?” for a more in-depth discussion about the issue.

“Together, we are making plans to change policy and narratives and design a new, more inclusive ‘anti-payday’ lending program for those our mainstream banking system excludes.”

– Anne Leland Clark, Executive Director
