Our General Aid program offers loans of up to $5,000, repayable over 20 months starting the month after the loan is issued. These loans serve as a safety net for immigrants from the Former Soviet Union:
- Who have no savings to cover unanticipated emergency expenses, such as medical or dental expenses
- Who can cover their basic expenses but cannot afford “big ticket” necessities, such as a car to commute to work
- Whose only other credit option is high-interest loans, such as credit cards
