Wigamig Owners Loan Fund, Inc. provides lending opportunities for down payment assistance and home improvement loans. We recently received a $100,000 grant from the Lac du Flambeau Band of Lake Superior Chippewa Indians. This grant will enhance Wigamig's current loan products and provide more lending opportunities to the Lac du Flambeau community.
There is an increased need for lending in Native communities, since many conventional banks are facing tighter constraints and regulations. Wigamig has more flexibility in this arena to provide lending services and financial products to this under served market.
Wigamig is excited for this new partnership with the Lac du Flambeau Tribe to continue making a significant impact for the people of the Lac du Flambeau community. By providing financial education along with affordable lending products, Wigamig is strengthening tribal members and their families.
