For Missy Bowstring, a member of the Leech Lake Band of Ojibwe, Leech lake Financial Services (LLFS) has been more than a place to get a personal loan. She received the load in May, but she often gets in touch for other kinds of financial help.
“I can always call LLFS and ask questions, even if I don’t need money,” Bowstring said. “I can ask credit questions or other financial questions.”
While its not a bank, LLFS does provide loans to Band members. LLFS also has expanded its services to include workshops on credit building and other financial topics. Bowstring attended one and found the experience “awesome.” She’s now putting what she learned to work in managing her domestic finances.
