Women Helping Women
The Nelson Angel Womens Loan Fund - Wahine Putea is a community based organisation run by Trustees, offering small interest free loans to women who would not otherwise have access to credit for business startup or for education or training purposes. There is a flexible lending policy, with most loans between $250 and $1500.
Applicants must fill in the application form which can be downloaded from our loan application page. You will then be contacted for an interview. If you are successful in your application you will get a contract to sign and funds become immediately available.
Repayments will be made at a rate decided on between you and the Angel Womens Loan Fund and are usually fully repaid within one year. A successful repayment record gives you the right to ask for another loan in future and will give you a useful credit rating with banks and financial institutions if you choose to approach them for business or mortgage loans later on.
You may wish to remain involved with the Loan Fund for as long as you wish after the loan has been fully repaid. Many borrowers go on to become committee members, trustees or Angels.
Thanks for stopping by, from the Nelson Angel Women's Loan Fund Trustees.
