About MJFLA:

Milwaukee Jewish Free Loan Association (MJFLA) is an interest-free, non-sectarian, non-profit organization that has been offering alternative financial solutions to Southeastern Wisconsin since 2009.  MJFLA’s revolving loan fund is entirely supported by members of the community through private donations. With a 99.6% repayment rate, MJFLA recycles funds again and again to make more loans.  MJFLA, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) corporation and a member of the International Association of Jewish Free Loans (IAJFL).


Our Mission:

Milwaukee Jewish Free Loan Association offers a hand-up instead of a handout, promoting self-sufficiency with dignity. Offering interest-free loans instead of charity, MJFLA seeks to empower people by furthering the concept of Gemilut Chasadim (acts of lovingkindness). MJFLA provides confidential loans on a non-sectarian basis to people who meet established criteria. As loans are repaid, MJFLA recycles those funds into new loans.


Vision Statement:

Milwaukee Jewish Free Loan Association sees a future in which self-reliant members of the community, finding themselves in a time of financial need, benefit from interest-free loans provided by a revolving loan fund supported by a network of community members.  MJFLA is the platform that enables this vision.


MJFLA has been an accredited member of the International Association of Jewish Free Loans since 2009.
