Our Services






I approached WINLF last year in search of financing to purchase a home here in Lac du Flambeau. I am a tribal member, who has worked hard for the past 6 years to rebuild my life after bankruptcy and divorce and I felt ready to be a homeowner once more. They made the entire loan process so easy and stress free while helping me to, not only buy my forever home in the place I grew up, but to later purchase a much needed new truck! The staff went above and beyond to treat me fairly and respectfully from start to finish and to give me the best, personalized experience that I will not soon forget! I am so grateful to WINLF as an institution that is available to us as Native people who are working hard to build lives for themselves and our families. I am back home and finally living the life I have dreamed of for so long. Chimiigwech!"
