US fintech Greenlight launches credit builder tool for teenagers

August 10, 2023

Citing a survey result, Greenlight says 84% of teenagers between the ages of 18 and 19 have zero credit history, limiting their opportunities to get their first job, or buy a car and a home.

Additionally, Greenlight’s research suggests that parents want their kids to learn about credit, but don’t have access to tools and resources, while teens are “stressed” about money and want more financial education.
