Travel Loan Services

When refugees are admitted to the United States for resettlement, their travel is arranged under a loan program by the International Organization for Migration. Refugees sign a promissory note stating that they will repay the interest-free loans to cover travel costs over a pre-determined period.

The Domestic & Foreign Missionary Society oversees the repayment process for the refugees we resettle. By guiding them through the repayment process, our loan counselors help refugees gain a basic understanding of personal credit literacy.
