We offer business training to youth and adults to help them dream bigger, plan better, and launch or scale small business ventures. We have a dedicated training program in agricultural entrepreneurship, and we also offer support to those who engage in other sectors like food vending, brick making, and shop keeping.
Jobs in western Kenya are few and far between, especially decently-paying jobs for people who lack advanced education. The informal business sector, however, is thriving and offers good opportunities to sustainably earn income. We support parents and other family guardians so they can aspire, plan, and launch income ventures to provide for their families. Our staff help beneficiaries to understand the importance of planning, market scanning, and engaging in savings and reinvestment to maintain or scale their businesses. We sometimes offer start-up capital to help new ventures start, and we connect our “micropreneurs” to lenders who can support them with loans in the future. Whether raising chickens for eggs and meat, or walking around town selling ice cream from a cooler, we have helped support a myriad of income ventures that help youth and family guardians provide for themselves.
