10,000 served by Tasmania’s own community lending program 

The No Interest Loans Network of Tasmania (NILS) has provided more than $8.2 Million in loans to low income Tasmanians since it was established in 2002.

NILS recently approved its 10,000th loan– a milestone for the not-for-profit organisation that provides interest-free finance for essential goods and services.
