Jewish War Veterans, Post 753 - HFLA-SA Loan Fund

This dedicated loan program is enabled thanks in paart to a generous donation by the Jewish War Veterans, Post 753.

Reflecting sincere appreciation to all who have served in our country’s military, these loans are available exclusively to local Jewish individuals who are verified United States’ Veterans or Dependents of one. By extending our traditional loan term to 50-months, recipients are able to take advantage of reduced monthly payments. As each loan awarded from the JWV Post 753/HFLA-SA is repaid, money will replenish this Fund, providing more borrowing opportunities for Veterans/Dependents.

If at any time the Fund Balance falls below a new loan amount, Applicants may apply under another program, with applicable terms.


SAJSS - Goldsmith Family - HFLA-SA Loan Fund

We value our Seniors! Thanks to a generous donation from San Antonio Jewish Senior Services (SAJSS) and The Goldsmith Family, we have a special Loan Program for local Jewish individuals, aged 60+.

This Program allows eligible Seniors the incredible opportunity to borrow up to $6,000 interest-free, with reduced monthly payments. As recipients repay these obligations, money is placed directly back into this Fund, enabling additional loans specifically for individuals 60+.

Should the SAJSS-Goldsmith Family-HFLA-SA fund balance preclude further lending, until sufficiently replenished, Applicants will be encouraged to borrow under another interest-free program, with those terms prevailing.
