Many individuals and families on low incomes can’t afford to buy a fridge or a washing machine. What would you do?
Good Shepherd Microfinance is Australia’s largest microfinance organisation working to help Australians battle poverty and hardship. Our programs help working class families and people on low incomes to access safe, fair and affordable financial products and services including:
(1) No Interest Loan Scheme (NILS) which enables people to buy essential goods and services such as fridges and washing machines
(2) StepUP low interest loans which can be used for personal or household purposes including car repairs
(3) Good Money community finance stores which are delivering financial services and support in three ‘High Street’ locations in Victoria
We work with 260 accredited community organisations in 650 locations and have reached more than 145,000 people experiencing financial exclusion.
