What is Esusu?
Esusu is a mission-driven company that works with property managers and renters to report on time rental payment data to the major credit bureaus as a way to establish and boost renters’ credit scores. Esusu also offers rent relief funds to eligible residents through our partnership with Stable Home Fund 501(c)(3) and provides access to services focused on financial support and well-being via the Esusu Renters Marketplace.
What does 'Esusu' mean?
Esusu describes traditional forms of cooperation in African societies whereby groups of individuals contribute to informal savings and credit associations for their mutual benefit. The practice is believed to have originated among the Yoruba people of Nigeria.
For us at Esusu, this sentiment translates to our motto, ''If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.''
