She had been laid off from her job and was working part-time at a cleaning service to make ends meet. Her income took a hit, and she started missing mortgage payments. She knew she would lose her home if she did not settle things with her lender.

What is the Enterprise Community Loan Fund at the National Urban League (ECLF-NUL)?
 

ECLF-NUL is a co-branded effort by the National Urban League and the Enterprise Community Loan Fund to market short term loans that help community developers serving our nation’s low income areas.  Loans may be used for predevelopment, acquisition, construction/renovation and bridge financing, to preserve multifamily housing, for-sale single family housing and special purpose housing as well as community facility and mixed use development.

Homeownership may be the single most important asset-building strategy for individuals and families. Homes hold significant value, often appreciate over time, and can be passed down from generation to generation.
