More about Mission Lane:

Mission Lane is based in the US, with offices in Richmond, Virginia, and San Francisco, California. Founded in December 2018, the company has snowballed to nearly two million clients worldwide.

It all started with realizing a problem that nearly fifty percent of the US adult population does not have access to a clear credit line. And by “clear,” we mean a loan without crazy fees that only add to the debt. Most traditional credit card companies overlook or overprice this group because they have worse than the best credit scores or no scores.

We understand that not everyone has the perks of the same opportunities, and also aware that everyone is joining us at different stages of their financial journey. Our team is providing access to clear credit was a necessary first step, but our work isn’t over yet. We actively develop new products designed to meet our customers where they are, according to their needs.
