Loans to Apply for Deferred Action?

According to Fox News Latino, an organization in Los Angeles is making loans to immigrants who want to apply for the President's Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.  Fox reports that the Binational Front of Indigenous Organizations (or Frente Indigena de  Organizaciones Binacionales -- FIOB) is offering loans of up to $1,000 to complete the application process.  To qualify, according to Fox, the immigrant must show that they have completed the forms and that they cannot afford the $465 fee.

A search of the FIOB website,, turns up no information on the loans.

Presumably, the $1,000 loan would cover the application fee, mailing costs, copying costs and a lawyer's fee.

The Fox article makes no mention of whether the offer for such loans is limited to residents of the Los Angeles area.
