For many people on low incomes, paying for essential goods and services is a struggle, and the effects of going without can be huge.
Without a fridge you can’t store fresh, healthy food, without a computer the kids may be left behind at school, and if you can’t afford car registration it’s easy to become isolated.
Your donation will enable people on low incomes to access the products and services they need through a process that treats them with dignity and respect.
Make a regular donation or talk to your employer about workplace giving.
You can organise and run your own fundraising event for Good Shepherd Microfinance. Visit our Everyday Hero page.

“I had my son Michael in 2014. In June this year I was able to move into my own place with him, but I didn’t have everything I needed … I honestly don’t know what would have happened if I wasn’t able to get the loan.”
“I’m a shift worker which was fine until Jesse, my son with Down Syndrome, finished school. I ended up having to stop work and I had to go back to under half my income. That was just scary, and it was really hard to cope for a long time … When I got involved with the No Interest Loan Scheme, it changed my way of thinking.”
“After an accident, I had to take early retirement from work … After having to leave your job, when you had no choice about it, you feel like everything has gone. When I was successful in getting that loan, it picked me up. I felt I was in control again.”
