Our Mission

Ending extreme poverty in rural Africa through entrepreneurship and innovation.

What We Do

Working in rural African villages, Village Enterprise’s mission is to end extreme poverty in rural Africa through entrepreneurship and innovation. Our model is simple and cost-effective, at just $500 per three-person business. The Village Enterprise one-year Graduation program provides groups of three entrepreneurs with seed capital, training and on-going mentoring by a local business mentor. We organize the business groups into Business Savings Groups (BSGs) of 30 entrepreneurs (10 business groups) to allow access to growth capital, provide a safe place for savings and build social capital. Integrated conservation training ensures that new business activities promote environmental best practices. Examples of businesses include livestock, farming, small retail stores and restaurants, tailoring, and beekeeping. Village Enterprise has started over 33,000 businesses and trained over 136,000 East Africans. As we scale up and move into new communities, we’re designing and testing pilots to improve our impact and efficiency.
