Did you know that TF is involved in the micro-lending initiative?
Particular to the micro-lending program, we contract caregivers through our licensed home early learning and child care programs. There are over 150 homes offering licensed home child care through Today’s Family.
“Today’s Family is very supportive of the Micro Loan Program. In our organization, the Micro Loan opportunity gives caregivers a chance to establish a credit rating to start and build a small business. For Today’s Family, it helps to create a quality child care environment; supporting children and families in our community.”
FirstOntario Credit Union, working closely with seven community supporters, including Today’s Family, has launched an innovative Micro Loan Program designed to encourage an entrepreneurial spirit within the Hamilton community. This new program provides Micro Loans to individuals who have a great idea for a micro-enterprise, but may not be able to access traditional financing. Financial assistance in the form of a Micro Loan from FirstOntario is combined with support programs offered by participating community partners to help these individuals get their self-employment dream off the ground.
