WEOKIE wants to empower everyone in our community to flourish and experience financial well-being.
Living just above the Federal Poverty Line is a cross-section of families and households who are struggling financially unable to meet basic needs. They must choose between paying rent or filling a needed prescription, fixing the car or buying groceries. In fact, 67% of families in our community are falling behind financially every month.
Though not labeled as living in “poverty” under the government definition, they are nonetheless struggling financially to survive. These families are not frivolous with their money. They are employed, and yet still struggle to meet their most basic needs, forcing them to make impossible choices – deciding between quality child care or paying the rent – filling a prescription or fixing the car.
As a solution, many people turn to Payday loans, Credit Cards, and other high-interest debt with extremely high-percentage rates and late fees, making a short-term problem a long-term burden.
They are your neighbors, friends, family members, co-workers, and those you sit next to in church. They make up almost a third of the households in America.
We have a solution. It’s called a Community Impact Loan!
It’s a 0% interest charitable loan – interest-free forever – with a flexible payback plan where 10% of each payment is given back to the borrower to help build emergency savings. This loan helps to bridge cash flow and pay emergency expenses without accruing extra fees or increasing high-interest debt.
This gives us an opportunity to meet the very real needs in our communities while also restoring dignity back to those receiving the funds. This is the key to prospering communities worldwide.
