About MJFLA:

Milwaukee Jewish Free Loan Association (MJFLA) is an interest-free, non-sectarian, micro-lending non-profit organization that has been offering alternative financial solutions to the Greater Milwaukee area since 2009.  MJFLA’s revolving loan fund is entirely supported by members of the community through private donations. With a 99.7% repayment rate, MJFLA recycles funds again and again to make more loans.  MJFLA, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit 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 loving-kindness). 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 is an accredited member of the International Association of Jewish Free Loans.
