April 2019 Update

By Kaitlyn Szabo April 12, 2019

It’s Our 4th Birthday!
In April 2015, Exodus Lending launched our interest-free loan refinancing program and enrolled our first participant. Four years and over 270 participants later, we’ve refinanced more than $217,000 of payday loan debt for Minnesotans and saved them more than an estimated $669,000! That’s money that stays in our communities to pay for rent, bills, childcare, transportation- and birthday cake.

Celebrate our 4th birthday with a gift to Exodus Lending!
Gifts of all sizes are appreciated and are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law.
