HOW IT WORKS

THERE ARE TWO WAYS THAT BAYOU MICROFUND LOANS ARE FUNDED

FINANCIAL INSTITUTIONS

Funding is also done through an arrangement we have made with local credit unions and banks. The entrepreneur gets interest free loans for a period of 12 to 24 months. Short term 6 month loans can also be provided on a case by case basis for on-going businesses that need a hand. All of these loans are interest-free to the entrepreneur.

KIVA TRUSTEES

Kiva enables you to make direct loans to entrepreneurs in Kenya and the United States. You can make a loan today for as little as $25. Over time, as your loan is repaid, you get your money back, and you can then withdraw it, or re-lend it to another entrepreneur.
