Wallis Bank Hosts Fundamentals of Good Credit Through the Credit Coalition Event

Wallis Bank and the Credit Coalition hosted two 6-week courses on the Fundamentals of Good Credit through the Credit Coalition in Houston. Designed to help consumers make informed, intelligent decisions about their financial and housing goals, the course offered massive potential towards the future goals of those who complete it.

The course touched on numerous extremely important elements of maintaining financial security including the significance of one’s credit health, personal financial wellness, maintaining a solid FICO score, interest rates, and much more.

Obtaining a Certificate of Completion from the 15-hour Fundamentals of Good Credit course meets requirements for financial and homebuyer education for the Texas State Affordable Housing Corporation (TSAHC), Texas Department of Housing and Community Affairs (TDHCA), Harris County, City of Houston, and several other homebuyer assistance programs for up to one year after completion.

Wallis Bank invests in those who hope to further their education when it comes to making important financial decisions. As a Preferred SBA Lender, Wallis Bank stands for small business owners and homeowners alike. In the hopes of building a stronger tomorrow for individuals everywhere, we believe continued courses such as the Fundamentals of Good Credit positively impact the community we thrive in.
