WEPROSPER: Website provides help against predatory loans in Illinois
The Brand and Challenge
WeProsper is a joint initiative of Woodstock Institute, New America Chicago, and The Chicago Urban League to help protect and assist those vulnerable to predatory financial practices in Illinois. Consumer resources were previously on site pages within a partner site which was limiting.
What We Did
A new stand alone website was created in WordPress to provide a dedicated online space for the initiative. The site offers free education for lawmakers and the public with special focus on communities of color. Both an English version and Spanish version site were created which site visitors can toggle between. The Spanish website for Chicago’s hispanic community is fully customized site with manually translated English to Spanish and imagery that resonates with the community.
Downloadable Resource Guides were also designed in both English and Spanish as well as promotional graphics for awareness building.
WeProsper provides Verve Marketing Group with monthly updates on new legislation and partner services. We translate these into Spanish and keep both the Spanish/English websites and Resource Guides up to date with the latest information.
