Interest Free Micro Loan

Interest Free Micro Loans provide a no-interest alternative to predatory lending for active duty, reserve, and National Guard military. Through Interest Free Micro Loans, one can borrow up to $500 with a flat fee of $5 and no interest for one month.

What You’ll Need

  • No credit report is pulled because those with emergency cash needs have already exhausted their options.
  •  No interest is charged, just an application fee of $5. With Interest Free Micro Loans, you don’t fall further into debt.
  • Immediate cash loans for up to 80 percent of net pay (not to exceed $500) are available for one month.
  • There’s minimal paperwork just a simple one-page form.
  • It’s completely confidential, meaning we don’t tell anyone who has come to see us.
  •  Up to three loans in six months are available, but after the first Interest Free Micro Loan, the recipient must sit down with a local Consumer Credit Counselor identified by the foundation.
