DALLAS, TX—Headquartered in one of the states with the highest incarceration rates in the U.S., Entre Capital is pioneering a new industry: reentry lending.  Former prisoners, or “returning citizens” as Entre redemptively identifies them, have difficultly accessing personal credit and it is even harder to borrow financing for entrepreneurial ventures. These barriers increase the risk of recidivism dramatically.

Born out of the Prisoner Entrepreneurship Program’s 15+ year mission serving men in prison with character formation and entrepreneurship mentoring, Entre Capital provides continuity for PEP graduates as they launch their ventures and seek to transform their lives.  The credit, community, and counsel Entre provides returning citizen entrepreneurs beautifully incarnates Christ’s mission of making all things new.
