Microenterprise Loans

HFLS provides interest-free loans of up to $50,000 to entrepreneurs seeking to launch or expand a small business as a path to economic security. Microenterprise loans are repaid over up to five years, with the monthly repayment amount and term determined based on the financial projections of the business. Pre- and post-loan technical assistance is provided as part of this loan program.
