The Frayser Neighborhood
The Frayser neighborhood of Memphis sprang up around the railroad in the late 1800s. In the 20th century, factories moved in, shopping centers and schools opened and the community thrived.
Despite these challenges, Frayser is full of potential. In 2017, a passionate MassMutual agent inspired us to do more. After learning about the damaging effect payday lenders had on the area, we were ready to act but didn’t have all the answers – we needed to take a mutual approach.
In 2018, Frayser welcomed the opportunity to be one of the first neighborhoods to participate in the Live Mutual Project.
