What is the SVdP (Columbus) Microloan Program?
The St. Vincent de Paul (SVdP) Microloan Program* provides small dollar, low-interest loans as an alternative to payday loans and to help with one-time emergency expenses that come up in nearly everyone’s life. If you are someone who does not have easy access to personal loans at market interest rates through a bank in your community, consider our loan program to help you get a handle on your debt while building your credit and feeling more secure about your financial future. The St. Vincent de Paul Microloan program in the Columbus Diocese does not assist with monthly bills (car payments, utilities, credit card payment, etc.), and rent or mortgage payments (current, past due, or evictions). We also do not make personal or auto loans.
*At this time, the SVdP (Columbus) Microloan Program is only available to residents of Coshocton, Delaware, Fairfield, Franklin, Hardin, Knox, Licking, Ross, and Union Counties in Ohio.
