Christian P. owns United Credit Solutions, a business offering credit consultation for those looking to rehabilitate their credit. He works with people who suffer from poor credit through financial mismanagement or who have been victimized by identity theft. What Christian finds most satisfying is that he helps his clients achieve a higher quality of life. With his tutelage, many of his clients are able to own their own car or home, things they had previously been unable to do.
Christian worked for a credit consulting firm for three years, before deciding to start United Credit Solutions a year ago. With many people still feeling the effects of the recession, United Credit Solutions has grown steadily as it helps more and more people escape financial crisis. Christian and his associates cover an extended territory in what is known in South Texas as “the Valley”.
This loan, through ACCION Texas-Louisiana, allows Christian to hire two additional employees, who will help Union Credit Solutions manage its increasing client volume.
Christian has quickly developed a reputation in South Texas as someone who can help people escape the vicious cycle caused by having poor credit. More than anything, Christian considers himself an educator. Christian, once a victim of poor credit himself, tells his clients how he raised his credit score from 400 and now owns two cars and a house. He says that he provides a real-life example of what his clients can achieve.
