We loan because...
We care about human beings and understand that it takes people to help people.

About us
We are one human family, and we know that people can do good without believing in a god.

The Plus sign in the A+ Team logo reflects the fact that the team comprises Atheists, PLUS Agnostics, Skeptics, Freethinkers, Secular Humanists, and Non-Religious members. A+ is also a symbol of excellence.
