“This acquisition and fundraise allow us to double-down on our strategy of helping consumers achieve their financial goals,” said Andrew Graham, co-founder and CEO of Borrowell.
“With an expanded team across the country and a comprehensive suite of credit building solutions, we’re eager to help even more Canadians access credit products that meet their specific needs and maximize their long-term financial health. All Canadians deserve a fair shot at building credit history, accessing affordable credit, and reaching their financial goals. We believe Borrowell can help make that a reality.”
This brings Borrowell’s total equity financing to $55 million and accelerates the company’s mission to help Canadians build their credit, make smart financial decisions, and achieve financial stability.
