Reliant’s Education And Literacy Financial Program
Get Financially REAL!
In a world where economic means are a key factor contributing to quality of life, consumer financial education has long been scarce and hard to come by; specifically, for our country’s minority and low-income communities who have been disproportionately plagued by financial barriers and challenges. As we recover from the COVID-19 pandemic, now is the time to focus on building your financial health.
As a leading Payment Processor in the debt resolution industry, Reliant recognizes the importance of raising awareness around financial capability and education. We would like to announce the start of our campaign, Reliant’s Financial Education and Literacy Program. Our focus will not only be to provide education but also to raise awareness for financial capability resources and programs across the country. We believe that one of the best ways we can support consumers is by empowering them with the tools to succeed.
