Tamra Thetford is the Chief Program Officer at Justine Petersen, a St Louis-based nonprofit that helps people build their credit so they can reach their goals. The organization started by helping folks work toward home ownership, and eventually expanded its services to include a path to entrepreneurship.

Tamra is here to tell us about Justine Petersen’s business program for formerly incarcerated people, Aspire Entrepreneurship Initiative. She also shares lots of information about credit building, an incredibly important process for many people who are home from incarceration and looking to start a business.
