Welcome – Дοбро пοжаловать – ברוכים הבאים Bienvenidos
Jewish Free Loan Toronto was formed with the mandate to Help People to Help Themselves by offering interest-free loans to needy individuals of the Jewish community throughout Ontario (excluding Ottawa).
Based on the Jewish value of G’milath Chasodim, “Acts of Loving Kindness,” JFLT helps a broad range of needy members of our community meet their educational and personal needs and create their own business opportunities.
Our numbers show the diversity and reach of Jewish Free Loan Toronto. We are proud to be helping hundreds of local Jewish families, with over 700 interest-free loans totaling more than $2,600,000.
Hebrew free loan associations like JFLT were pioneers of the microfinance movement which empowers individuals to remain self-sufficient while preserving their dignity.
Our work is made possible thanks to the ongoing support of our major funders, UJA Federation of Greater Toronto and the Azrieli Foundation.
