Miren expands access to financing capital by enabling financial institutions, big and small, to better assess the risk profiles of no-credit and credit-thin small business owners with our software and data services.

For community development financial institutions (CDFIs) and credit unions, we build software to enable teams to optimize their loan intake and portfolio management processes without impacting their manual underwriting. For community banks, we provide an enrichment data layer so that they can use alternative data, instead of traditional credit scores, in their underwriting models.
