At Jewish Free Loan, we rely on guarantors instead of collateral to secure your loan. A guarantor is someone who can guarantee to pay back the loan if you do not. A guarantor is at least 25 years old, lives in California and has a credit score of 680 or better. A friend, family member, or employer are examples of a guarantor.

Loans To Help With Rent

If you can’t pay rent and you’re in need of non-profit rent assistance, start your application today and see if you qualify for an emergency rent loan. Even with bad credit, you may be eligible for rental help or housing assistance.

We take pride in providing assistance to the veteran community in Los Angeles. We provide not only rental assistance to veterans, but loans that can be put towards cars and transportation, utilities, vocational training, food, clothing, and dental or medical emergencies.
