Lending Circles for Dreamers

DBLA-Social-Card-ENGWe are proud to be one of the first organizations to join DreamBigLA , find out how you can apply for 0% loans for Lending Circles for Deferred Action (DACA)!

Background
With nearly one million youth eligible for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), promising young people can now apply for a program that offers them protection from deportation and access to work permit. But, most of them cannot afford the $465 application fee. To help the rest half of one million eligible DACA, MAOF provides the Lending Circles for Dreamers program.

How it works
Lending Circles for Dreamers provides a zero-interest, zero-fee loan to help participants pay the $465 application fee for DACA. Participants take our online financial training class and build credit by making low monthly payments of $46.50 for 10 months. As soon as participants are ready to apply for DACA, we give them a check issue to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.

Building a Brighter Future
When you are eligible for DACA, you receive a work permit and become eligible for a Social Security number. You will have protection from deportation. And with Lending Circles for Dreamers, you get the chance to improve your credit score and financial savviness to help build a brighter future.

Information from USCIS about DACA
Consideration of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA)
