About

Success Stories

“I was born in Uzbekistan, lived for years in Israel and then came to Canada. When I first arrived here, I borrowed money from HFLA for dental work.”

 Last year, I was involved in a car accident and am no longer able to perform my duties at the factory where I have worked for years. I now live on a pension and I am in desperate need of more dental work.  While I have very little debt, sometimes I give my ex-wife and grown daughter money to help them out so money is tight. Using a colleague and my former supervisor from my days working at the factory as my two guarantors, I was able to secure a loan from HFLA. I had my teeth fixed and my life my quality of life has really improved.

About Us

Tribute Cards

The Hebrew Free Loan Association (HFLA) helps people help themselves by granting interest-free loans to members of BC's Jewish Community.

We offer people a helping hand, or hand up, not a hand out. In the process, loan recipients maintain dignity and self-sufficiency as they repay their interest-free loans. Our organization is founded on the mitzvah of Gemilut Chesed — Deeds of Loving Kindness.
