• “MAF’s unique lending model allows low-income individuals and families to build the credit they need to get student loans, rent apartments and buy homes on their way to overcoming poverty. With 1.3 million people too poor to meet their basic needs in our community, this life-changing work is more critical than ever.”
    Daniel Lurie, CEO + Founder, Tipping Point Community
