Personal Loans

HFLA can give you a helping hand and immediate financial relief in the form of an interest-free loan. It is not a handout but a way to guide you through a crisis or help you meet a financial obligation. Personal loans of up to $8,000 can offset an emergency, support you through a life change, finance your education or even help you celebrate a joyous occasion. In the past, our loans have assisted with medical and dental expenses, car and housing repairs, life-cycle events, early childhood and continuing adult education, divorce, immigration costs and mortgage and rental costs. As with all of our loans, you must meet borrowing requirements before participating in the Personal Loan Program.

How Can I Qualify for a Loan?

  • HFLA's interest-free loan program is available to Jewish residents of Miami-Dade County.
  • You must be a resident of Miami-Dade County for at least six-months prior to the application date.
  • You must be at least 18-years-of-age to apply.

  • If you require a guarantor, ask them to complete the guarantor application (below).

What Happens After I Submit My Application?
