Temporary easy borrowing options from JFLA in 2021

In response to the Covid-19 pandemic, JFLA introduced a new loan called a reference-only loan to make it easier for people to qualify for some emergency loans. With a reference-only loan, you don’t need a guarantor but just the name and contact information of someone who confirms that they know you. If you are

  • Employed + 2 references, you can get up to $4,000.

Also in response to the Covid-19 pandemic, JFLA introduced the possibility of getting a loan without having a steady source or income or being employed. If you are

  • Unemployed + 1 guarantor, you can get up $1,000. A guarantor is someone who agrees to pay back your loan if you don’t.
