When a refugee enters the US for the first time, the only thing accompanying him/her is the talent, knowledge, and experience they have gained in the past. The lack of Credit history and non-availability of financial resources/loans makes it very difficult for them to start a new business.

To overcome this, the IDC provides Micro-Loans to those Micro-Enterprise Entrepreneurs that are in need of assistance.

  • The Micro-Loans act as the Startup capital for the business and provides them with an economic boost

  • The Micro-Loans are provided to the entrepreneurs with very little fees and are very flexible
