The Hebrew Free Loan Society (HFLS) fosters financial stability and opportunity among lower-income New Yorkers by providing access to safe and affordable credit in the form of interest-free loans.
HFLS loans make an immediate, concrete difference in the lives of our borrowers, enabling them to invest in their education, start a business, meet emergency expenses, and more. Founded in 1892, HFLS is a non-sectarian lender; you do not have to be Jewish to receive an interest-free loan from HFLS.
“HFLS was there for me, when no one else was.”
– Garrick, Ten to One
“The loan helped my business expand.”
– Ariana, Balkan Bites
“I was able to pivot during the pandemic.”
– Jahkeen, JTW Fit
