Questions


How does TMF’s model work?

        The Madison Fund has been founded as a nonprofit organization. In addition, TMF has been built in a unique and effective way. TMF relies entirely on volunteer work to function and does not pay any of its employees, directors, or interns a salary of any kind. This low-cost model ensures that as close to 100% as possible of the incoming donations are used to provide loans to businesses and entrepreneurs. TMF's nonprofit status means that TMF cannot take the loan returns as profits and the returns on both principal and interest are reinvested into the loan pool in order to fund more loans.

 

What does TMF offer in addition to loans?

        In addition to the loans themselves, TMF offers financial guidance and assistance to its borrowers. We want to ensure that borrowers are able to keep to their loan repayment schedules so as to not disrupt their businesses and lives. The Madison Fund team is always there to help the borrower overcome financial obstacles of any kind. Unlike a big bank, the loans that TMF offers are not secured by collateral meaing TMF is fully invested in the borrower and the business.
