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.
