Serving the Underserved and “Un-Scorable”

Glen talks with Oportun COO Matt Jenkins about extending small dollar credit to the “un-scorable” and the challenges of maintaining a mission like Oportun’s as a public company.  Also- a bizarre coin shortage, and signs of small merchants returning to cash.
