Tuesday Programs - Exodus Lending: Freeing Minnesotans from a Debt Trap

Event Date: Tuesday, January 29, 2019
Event Time: 11:00 am 

Guest Speaker: Sara Nelson-Pallmeyer

Payday loans trap borrowers in a cycle of debt from which it’s almost impossible to escape. The typical borrower is a middle-aged woman, just trying to take care of her family. Thousands of Minnesotans get caught in the trap every year and struggle to get free. Exodus Lending is a nonprofit that started in 2015 which addresses this issue head-on, both by freeing individuals one by one, and speaking out about political solutions. 

Sara Nelson-Pallmeyer has been the Executive Director of Exodus Lending since 2016 and brings with her a lifetime of nonprofit experience, with agencies such as Habitat for Humanity, the Greater Minneapolis Council of Churches and Sarah’s... an Oasis for Women. A mother of three young adult daughters, she is glad to work with an agency that serves mostly women throughout the state of Minnesota.
