About Us

PE's peer lending program is closely modeled after the Grameen Bank in Bangladesh. Since the inception of its microloan program in 1997, PE has lent more than $600,000 with only 8% written off. PE currently serves more than 300 active members in Central Harlem, Queens, Brooklyn and the Bronx.
