Windmill Microlending works to reduce labour shortages and social injustices by helping immigrants and refugees build careers in Canada. We do this by offering affordable loans of up to $15,000 along with career coaching, financial literacy and mentorship to newcomers who lack access to mainstream credit. Since 2005, Windmill has empowered over 8,000 clients to return to their careers in healthcare, IT, financial services, law, engineering and many other fields. Windmill is a registered Canadian charity supported by donations and community bonds from the private sector and grants from the public sector.
The results of a Windmill microloan are life changing. On average, our clients triple their income by the time they repay their loan. With your support, we can serve more clients and make a lasting impact of the lives of newcomers across Canada.
