Costa Mesa, Calif., OCT. 6, 2023 – As part of its commitment to Financial Power to All™, Experian is now offering Experian credit reports in Spanish[i] to serve the burgeoning U.S. Hispanic-Latino community. To generate awareness about how to access the Experian credit report and the bilingual educational resources Experian offers, the company is launching campaigns with national Hispanic-Latino media networks and sharing educational information with several community organizations this fall.
Charlando about credit
When it comes to credit, an Experian survey reveals that more than 25 percent of Hispanic-Latinos want to know what information on a credit report means and 45 percent are interested in learning how to build credit. While half (50%) of those surveyed want to know how to keep their credit score high[ii].
To kick off the campaign, Experian is collaborating with NBCUniversal Telemundo Enterprises and TelevisaUnivision to deliver credit information across several Spanish-language media platforms. This effort includes a video series with NBCUniversal Telemundo Enterprises featuring TV personality Andrea Meza, the host of its morning show “Hoy Día” and former Miss Universe 2020, beginning on October 9.
“I’m delighted to work with Experian to raise awareness about taking care of finances for our Latino community in the United States,” says Meza.
TelevisaUnivision will also help build credit awareness with Experian across its footprint of networks and streaming platforms. Viewers will learn about the availability of Spanish credit reports by Experian on popular Univision programs such as” Despierta América” and “El Gordo y La Flaca,” award shows and live sports.
As active supporters of the Hispanic-Latino community, Experian will also distribute credit education via trusted community partner organizations including UnidosUS – a national Hispanic civil rights and advocacy nonprofit organization – and Inclusiv Network, the only national association representing CDFI certified, and minority designated credit unions.
“Understanding your personal credit history is critical to financial wellness. Removing the language barrier and providing Experian credit reports in Spanish is part of our commitment to financial inclusion for all,” said Wil Lewis, Chief Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Talent Acquisition Officer for Experian. “We hope that this enhancement promotes equitable access to financial tools that will further empower the Hispanic community.”
