Jewish Interest-Free Loan of Atlanta Announces Quick Start Loan Program
Young Jewish Professionals in Atlanta can now apply for a 0% interest loan up to $3,000
ATLANTA, GA, November 8, 2021 – Jewish Interest-Free Loan of Atlanta (JIFLA) today announces launch of the Quick Start Loan program. The organization’s Young Professional Committee, composed of Jewish leaders and advocates from across metro Atlanta, worked to develop this new loan in coordination with the JIFLA staff and Loan Committee.
“We saw a need in the community for Young Professionals who don’t have established credit nor people in their lives who could lend them money,” said Nata Saslafsky, a member of the JIFLA Young Professional Committee. “A quick start on funding their needs now can have a long-lasting impact on their future.”
Quick Start Loans provide Jewish community members aged 20-40 with the opportunity to borrow up to $3,000 interest-free for up to 30 months. A unique feature of this loan type is the requirement of a character reference in lieu of guarantor for the loan.
“The JIFLA Board and Loan Committee challenged the Young Professional Committee to create a program that amplifies the needs of their demographic,” said Merrie Edelston, JIFLA Loan Committee co-chair. “We are so proud of their success in developing and launching the Quick Start Loan program and look forward to providing a helping hand to Jewish young professionals.”
Loan applications are available online at www.JIFLA.org.
