August Split-the-Plate Partner: Peoples’ Loan Program

Tuscaloosa area churches and civic leaders have gathered to establish a new resource for low-income residents. The organization makes no-interest loans available to eligible citizens for housing and utility needs, including money for emergency rent, mortgage and utility bills; for minor house repairs; for appliance, plumbing and power repairs, additions, or replacements; and any other living expenses. Repayment is expected but payments are kept low. This ministry offers an alternative to the injurious payday loan process.

Their mission is as follows:

Peoples’ Loan Program provides no-interest loans to residents of the West Alabama community, offering hope and dignity to those in financial distress.

PLP invites you to support them in this innovative project that will offer our community and neighbors relief from the negative effects of the loan-debt cycle.
