Our Mission: To Help You Live On Your Terms

We are a different kind of lender with a refreshing new approach to personal lending. Our loans help you live on your terms. We’re here to help you reach the important milestones in life—buying your first car, planning your dream wedding—and to achieve your goals, whether you’re dreaming of renovating your home, taking that life-changing vacation, or simply consolidating your debt. Live on your terms with Enliven.

Why Enliven

We believe financially responsible people deserve a better option. That’s why we are redefining borrowing. We are committed to helping you borrow funds in a simple, smart, and affordable way. With Enliven, you have choices: choices with flexible terms, or to improve your financial picture with better payment options. Whatever your financial goals, we can help you achieve them. And, we won’t keep you waiting for a decision.

Why We Started Enliven

We believe the purpose of every lender should be to help you live on your terms. We started Enliven with that purpose in mind, and a goal to bring back the trust, service, and reliability that are missing among so many lenders.

At Enliven, we are building a company that brings simplicity, fairness, and convenience to the borrowing experience. We aim to alleviate the barriers to accessing credit faced by financially responsible people everywhere. We are a company that understands life’s ups and downs and are committed to supporting your financial aspirations, whatever they may be.
