Company Overview


Oportun (Nasdaq: OPRT) is a financial services company that leverages its digital platform to provide responsible consumer credit to hardworking people.

Using A.I.-driven models that are built on 15 years of proprietary customer insights and billions of unique data points, Oportun has extended more than 4 million loans and over $10 billion in affordable credit, providing its customers with alternatives to payday and auto title loans.

In recognition of its responsibly designed products which help consumers build their credit history, Oportun has been certified as a Community Development Financial Institution (CDFI) since 2009.


Oportun is able to provide affordable and responsible loans to traditionally unserved consumers, and score 100%of its loan applicants.

Since its first loan in 2006, Oportun has saved its customers more than $1.8 billion in interest and fees when compared to other options typically available to people with little or no credit history.

By reporting repayment performance to the major credit bureaus, the company has also helped more than 890,000 people begin to establish a credit history.



Design@Oportun is dedicated to the cultivation, delivery, and thoughtful reflection on the systems, mechanisms, languages, and assets that our customers (internal and external) interact with on a daily basis.

That seems like a lot, right?

The brass tacks of our design philosophy are quite simple: we succeed in our obsession for our customers, their unique needs, their present challenges, and their future goals.

We model and teach empathy, we sweat the details, and we deliver experiences that encourage beneficial (and delightful!) outcomes.
