Small Dollar Lending Program for Women of Color

The Small Dollar Lending Program is a way for women of color to get help to pay bills, get out of debt, avoid eviction and other financial emergencies. The program removes the red tape from borrowing small amounts of money that can make a big impact on people’s lives while allowing women to keep their dignity and get ahead.

With a gender wage gap at $0.57 on the dollar, Black women earn $15K less annually than white women and $23K less than white men. (Status of Women in Dane County, 2016)

“My goal is to have more Black women in positions of power — happier and thriving!”
