FICO announced the launch of myFICO en Espa??ol, the first Spanish-language website where consumers can obtain their personal credit report, credit report analysis, FICO Score and FICO Score analysis in Spanish.
The FICO Score is the standard measure of consumer credit risk in the United States, and knowing and understanding it is considered by most personal finance experts to be a cornerstone of personal financial health. Ninety of the 100 largest U.S. banks use a consumer's FICO Score for such credit decisions as determining mortgage rates, car loan financing and credit card terms.
Until now, Spanish speakers have only had access to their credit reports and FICO Scores in English. Now these products and others ÔÇô including FICO Scores, credit reports, credit monitoring programs and the Suze Orman FICO Kit ÔÇô are available in Spanish.
"Accessing a FICO score and reading and understanding one's credit report are fundamental to understanding one's credit health," said Sergio Ugarte, vice president of scores business development, FICO. "myFICO.com will change the way Spanish speaking consumers approach credit, just as it has done for English speaking consumers since 2001."
FICO helps millions of individuals manage their personal credit health through its award-winning website, www.myFICO.com. It is a trusted source of consumer credit information with an average of 700,000 visitors monthly. The new site enables users to toggle between Spanish and English, a format that is preferred by many bilingual speakers. More than 600 pages of Spanish-language consumer financial educational materials are available to visitors.
