COMMUNITY SUPPORT PROGRAMS

NO INTEREST LOAN SCHEME - BACKGROUND

Centrecorp Foundation NILS provides microfinance loans to aboriginal people of Central Australia to enable them to purchase essential household items. The necessitous circumstances experienced by many of the aboriginal people of Central Australia are manifested in a number of ways, including as illness, abuse, displacement, hunger, long term unemployment, isolation and exclusion from participating in society caused by, among other things, the lack of access to appropriate services, relief and assistance. The Centrecorp Foundation NILS attempts to specifically address the lack of access to affordable finance for essential household items.

Centrecorp Foundation acknowledges Good Shepherd Youth & Family Service for the development of the NILS program and for the assistance provided for the Centrecorp Foundation to be accredited.
