Our Purpose

Redbud Financial Alternatives was created by and for people living in the coalfields of Appalachian Kentucky. In our economically-distressed region, Redbud offers an alternative to predatory lenders that take advantage of individuals, families, and communities facing hard times. We help our clients recover from substantial debt and credit issues arising from high-cost lending practices and access the tools to maintain financial stability in the future.

Financial stability is about more than your credit score - it's about your life. Whether it's purchasing a home, advancing your education, or paying monthly bills, you have a goal in mind and we are here to help you reach it! Our staff will work with you to identify your goals and the obstacles you face, and then develop a plan to overcome those obstacles and build your financial stability.
