Since January 2012 the LiveOak Microfinance Program has been providing financial and inspirational support to former inmates eager to get a fresh start in life. Interest-free loans provide the means for work related resources (i.e. transportation, tools, work boots, clothes) and seed money for micro enterprises launched by budding entrepreneurs.

The program also provides mentoring and coaching. For recipients who do not start their own businesses, the program helps find and secure employment.

LiveOak Microfinance was founded by Austin-based businessman and philanthropist, Dr. Andrei Duta. If you feel called to help sponsor this vital program and contribute to future success stories, please consider making a donation via mail or via credit card using the link below.

They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers. And awe came upon every soul, and many wonders and signs were being done…And they were selling their possessions and belongings and distributing the proceeds to all, as any had need. – Acts 2:42-43, 45, ESV
