Prosperity Connection has launched its very first RedDough® Money Center, a small-dollar loan store that also offers check cashing and other alternative banking services. RedDough provides an affordable alternative to traditional check cashing and payday lending, while presenting a true pathway to economic independence. In addition, its mission is to give back to the communities it serves by providing resources to support financial education, scholarships and various social services.
