LiftFund started in 1994 in San Antonio, Texas and expanded to Corpus in 2004. Janie Barrera is our founder President and CEO and Laura Leal Estrada is our Market Manager and lead for the region. Both proud to be Corpus Christi natives.
This year marks our 15th anniversary of helping small business owners in our community with business education and responsible lending. We are proud to be part of Corpus Christi’s entrepreneurial ecosystem and look forward to continue working with the community to support more small business owners and entrepreneurs in our great city.
Since 2004, LiftFund has served over 950 Corpus Christi businesses with more than $15 million in capital. We are proud of the partnerships we have developed in the community in support of small business owners, including our buy down program with the City of Corpus Christi, which allows us to provide loans at a reduced 5.5% interest rate for business owners in the city.
