The mission of Jewish Free Loan Association is to offer interest-free loans on a non-sectarian basis to individuals and families whose needs are urgent and who may not qualify through normal financial channels. Interest-free loans, instead of charity, fill an important gap by promoting self-sufficiency with dignity. Jewish Free Loan Association is a source of economic justice in the community.
