American Express news: American Express, Nova Credit extends credit opportunities to more newcomers to the US

From ZDNet:

Today, newcomers to the US from four African, Central and South American countries will have the financial opportunity to pursue their American dreams by building their credit in the US.

American Express, in partnership with cross-border credit reporting fintech company Nova Credit, announced today that it has expanded credit access to immigrants from Brazil, Dominican Republic, Kenya and Nigeria with global credit scoring and reporting platform Credit Passport, enabling newly-arrived immigrants to the US from these countries to use their credit history to immediately apply for personal American Express cards and to start building credit history in America.
