About Us

Who We Are

The Jubilee Initiative for Financial Inclusion (JIFFI) is a nonprofit financial services provider operated in the South Bend community by students from the University of Notre Dame. JIFFI seeks to offer an alternative to the practice of predatory payday lending which perpetuates poverty. We offer cash advances supplemented by tailored financial planning tools that help our clients get ahead instead of falling behind.

Our Mission

JIFFI strives to shape a better financial environment for our community and to uphold the financial dignity of every individual by providing access to fair credit and opportunities to build financial assets.

Our Vision

JIFFI envisions a community where all members are financially stable and have equal access and assistance to financial resources.
