The Church Investment Loan Fund (CILF) simultaneously blesses investors, borrowers, and the people served by EMM workers around the world. Here's how it works ...
... for investors People with a heart to further the work of the church invest some of their savings in the CILF and receive interest income in return.
... for borrowers Anabaptist churches and church-related agencies in Pa. who are purchasing or renovating facilities borrow money from the CILF at favorable adjustable annual rates (currently 3.50%).
... for mission workers The Church Investment Loan Fund produces $400,000 of income per year for EMM. People around the world encounter Christ through EMM mission work, funded in part by a portion of the interest income from CILF loans.
Here's the back story:
The CILF has been providing a return to believers and furthering the expansion of church ministries since 1959. The fund is administered by a group of church, business, and professional directors, including respected bankers and financial managers from within the Mennonite community.
