What clients say about MAF

Lending Circles were our first financial door. They helped me open my own restaurant. And they helped me learn to manage the financial system to open even more doors in the future.
— Isabel C., El Buen Comer
So many doors have opened to me thanks to Lending Circles…I hope to stay active with MAF so that when my daughter gets older, she’ll also be able to benefit from these same resources.
— Reina A., Reina’s Cleaning Service
I never applied for a loan before because I didn’t have credit. Now I do, thanks to MAF.
— Alfredo S., Carisma Beauty Salon
