WGC Micro-Loan Program Success Story

The WGC will continue our partnership with Lincoln Central Neighborhood Family Center again in 2021 to offer Micro-Loans to women in crisis. Diane Doup, who manages the program at LCNFC shared the impact the loans had for women in 2020. "A woman who works part-time, at an hourly-paying job, had to quarantine for two weeks after she was exposed to the virus at work. She was not eligible for unemployment, so had a direct loss of income for those two weeks. Funds from WGC helped with her utility bills which were due during that time".

Due to the continued difficulties local women and families are having because of the pandemic, the WGC will forgive the loans for the first half of 2021.
