"I submitted an application for a loan from NCDF and was approved. The purpose of the loan is to relocate from my rental home to my father’s house in which I inherited. The reason for the move is to reduce my monthly living expenses by not having to pay rent on my current house and to be able to live in my own home with reduced living expenses. There are repairs, upkeep and utilities that have to be addressed prior to moving into the house that I am using the funds to bring the house to a living standard due to the house being vacant for 3 years since the passing of my father.  If it was not for the loan from NCDF this would have been a greater burden on me financially to move into my own home which will greatly reduce my living expenses and bring much happiness to me personally in honoring my father’s wishes for me to have this home. Thank you for the opportunity and financial assistance in accomplishing my dream."

I want to thank NiMiiPuu Community Development Fund. I was in a bad position with my finances because of an accident and back surgery. I tried finding help and other services, but because of my salary, I was over income even though at the time I did not have an income coming in. I utilized all the leave I had after my surgery, but unfortunately, it was only able to help for one full pay check and a partial paycheck. For the remainder of the next couple of months, I had two pay periods with no income coming in, and for two pay periods, I had less than half a paycheck. It is only by the help the NiMiiPuu Community Development Fund that I was able to make it. Thank you so much…”
