Ways to Work
www.waystowork.org/
Ways to Work is a unique Community Development Financial Institution based in Milwaukee, WI. Through a network of more than 50 loan offices across the country, Ways to Work, a nonprofit financial empowerment loan program, helps working families move to greater levels of self-sufficiency with access to financial education and reliable transportation. They provide small, short-term, low-interest loans to working poor families with challenging credit histories, providing an alternative to predatory lenders for people with a demonstrated commitment to achieving increased self-sufficiency and intent on achieving a higher level of participation in mainstream financial markets. The purpose of the loan is to help family members pay for unexpected expenses that could interfere with their ability to keep a job or stay in school. Most often the loans are used to purchase a reliable used car. To many, owning a car means the difference between getting or keeping a decent job, accessing high quality childcare, participating in children’s school related activities, and obtaining additional job training or education.
