Travel Loan Services
When refugees are admitted to the United States for resettlement, their travel is arranged under a loan program by the International Organization for Migration (IOM). Refugees sign a promissory note stating that they will repay the interest-free loans to cover the cost of airline tickets over a pre-determined period. These payments are used to reimburse the U.S. Government for the funds it provided to IOM for refugee transportation.
USCRI oversees the repayment process for the refugees that we resettle. By guiding the clients through the repayment process our loan counselors help refugees gain basic financial literacy and establish good credit in their new country. The repayment of these loans enables the U.S. Government to continue to assist refugees.
