WHO WE ARE

WE ARE BAYOU MICROFUND

Bayou Microfund is a non-profit 501 (c)(3) corporation launched in an effort to expand the presence of micro-lending opportunities in Houston, Texas.

We are a trustee of Kiva and are launching a pilot program in collaboration with TiE Houston, to educate, fund, and incubate micro-entrepreneurs. The Seed of the Idea came from a talk that founder Prasad Menon made at a TiE event several years ago and stemmed from experiences earlier in his career. More here on Why We Started.

These micro-funding initiatives will be achieved through a combination of Kiva micro-funding and guaranteed loans in Houston. We hope this collaboration will accelerate micro-lending and create a vibrant micro-finance community here in Houston.
