Credit Up! Program (CUP!)

The Credit Up! Program is comprised of two programs, the CUP! Financial Empowerment and the CUP! Small Dollar Loan Program, designed to give entrepreneurs an opportunity to learn about the importance of credit and put good credit habits to practice.

“I’m grateful to have been given the opportunity to work on improving my credit score through NDC’s CUP! program. The program gave me a manageable way to work on my credit and it was effective!”
