Wisconsin Native Loan Fund (WINLF) is a certified Native CDFI serving the target market of Native American communities in Wisconsin. WINLF is a mission driven, community based revolving loan fund. Our mission is to increase the financial self- sufficiency of Wisconsin Native American communities.

WINLF Strategic Approach

Provide access to affordable capital

Provide financial education and asset-building services

Increase self-sufficiency and improve economic and social conditions


  • 396 loans closed on 9 Reservations

  • $2,407,849 in loan capital deployed to tribal members in Wisconsin

  • Increased financial skills in nearly 2,800 clients

  • Over 2,400 clients received free tax preparation and tax credit counseling

By providing affordable lending opportunities and development services on each Indian Reservation, WINLF is increasing the self-sufficiency in Tribal members across the state. America is the land of opportunity.  But the facts are that many would-be home owners in low-income communities lack access to financing.  WINLF levels the playing field by providing lending opportunities for housing and credit repair.  WINLF’s efforts foster sustainability by providing home ownership to families and in turn, providing safer neighborhoods, economic growth, and pride in our communities.
