Local Initiatives Support Corporation

In Rural Texas, Seeding Small Businesses, and Generational Wealth, with the Help of Kiva—and a Kiva Trustee

Kiva loans supported by LISC are a lifeline of zero interest capital to dozens of micro-business owners in underserved places across the country. But just as critical to the loan’s success as an entrepreneur’s dreams and drive is the role of the Kiva trustee—a trusted, community-based partner who supports borrowers from application and business development all the way to loan repayment. Joseph Ceasar, founder and CEO of Legacy Institute for Financial Education in rural Lufkin, TX is an exemplary Kiva trustee, on a mission to bring financial know-how and stability and generational wealth-building back to his community.

It’s a journey that parallels are own at LISC as we enact our commitment to racial equity and justice, inclusivity and transparency.

In a Time of Crisis, Business Development Organizations Step Up

And that's where business development organizations (BDOs) come in. LISC BDO partners link their on-the-ground networks and insight with LISC’s national scale, funding and expertise to support small businesses, in the midst of COVID, and for the future.
