We loan because...
We loan because of wanting to do something about the unequal distribution of wealth and resources in our world. Loaning to entrepreneurs is an effective way of helping people and developing local economies. We are pleased to be able to do that. Because of Terry Tollefson's interests we suggest loans supporting farming and education, although we welcome all loans.

About us
Our team honours the memory of Professor Terry Tollefson who taught Soil Science in the College of Agriculture and Bioresources at the University of Saskatchewan. Terry was an excellent teacher, a dear colleague, friend, and dedicated family man. He was a successful farmer who applied what he taught to conservation farming in the semi-arid prairies of Saskatchewan. Many students from Saskatchewan and from distant lands became his good friends, experiencing Terry's consistent support and interest in their life's journey.

Location: Saskatoon, Saskatchewan
