Lend4Health facilitates community-based, interest-free "micro-loans" as a creative funding option for individuals seeking optimal health.The OC Register has a number of articles about the organization here.

Currently, Lend4Health is facilitating loans for the biomedical treatment of children and adults with autism spectrum disorders. Other health issues may be included on Lend4Health in the future.
Lend4Health is inspired by the online lending system at kiva.org.
