  • Borrower Story: Dan

    Starting a bakery business is as tough as kneading dough. Dan’s vision was to revitalize Bibi’s Bakery & Cafe’s image. He only had enough money to buy the bakery, but not enough to make the desired changes Bibi’s really needed.

    Fertility loan fund pays it forward

    Alan and Emily tried for years to have children through in vitro fertilization (IVF), an invasive reproductive treatment that can cost well over $15,000 per attempt. On their seventh try, they conceived twins, who were born in 2012. Alan and Emily wanted to help other couples struggling with infertility and decided to pay it forward. In 2013, the San Fernando Valley couple established the Feit 4 KidZ Fertility Loan Fund, a program of the Jewish Free Loan, which offers interest-free loans of up to $15,000 to residents of Los Angeles and Ventura counties for IVF procedures. Since inception, there have been 175 loans, and Jewish Free Loan raised more than 1.3 million dollars to alleviate the financial hardship associated with the fertility process.

    Interest-free loans of up to $15,000 help people struggling with infertility pay for medical treatment and specialized medications often not covered by insurance. Two guarantors are required for these loans.
