A Good Returns Cycling Company

 

In September 2018, Good Returns announced a first-of-its-kind partnership with ORIX Corporation USA (ORIX USA) - the deployment of a $250,000 “Cycle.” This Cycle was Good Returns’ first with a multi-national corporation and the largest to date. The investment is currently serving Impact Organizations in North Texas that address several important cause areas including basic needs, education, empowerment, health and veterans. 

Good Returns and ORIX USA are thrilled to align in values, which emphasize innovation and sustainability as essential components to creating social impact.

Dr. Travis Hammons had just finished a 15-month tour of duty in Iraq when he came to PeopleFund for a loan. As a military dentist, he took care of our frontline soldiers and earned the Army Commendation Medal for exceptional service. As a civilian, he wanted to open his own practice, but lacked the cash on hand to fund it himself. After being turned down for a bank loan, PeopleFund was able to extend a $100,000 loan to Dr. Hammons for his now thriving practice. Together, PeopleFund and Dr. Hammons empower returning veterans to create stable careers for themselves and others.
