Following the Payments Map of companies serving the Emerging Middle Class, here’s The Credit Map. A handy dandy guide for seeing how all the pieces fit together and a decent sample of who are the movers and shakers. These companies were key in generating $71 billion in consumer revenues in 2012 by issuing approximately $300 billion in various shapes and forms of credit, from auto titles to secured credit cards to pawn and the more out there “future earning lenders” and “employer lenders.” I hope it’s useful.
Who’s here?
