Investing in Good Jobs

We grow high potential small businesses in Kenya and Uganda. This creates safe, secure and fairly paid work where it’s needed most.

A sustainable and scalable model to create millions of good jobs in emerging markets

By combining long term investment with our step by step growth methodology, we challenge conventional investor logic and make previously unviable investments, viable.

Through this journey, we deploy our Good Jobs Framework to create safe, secure and fairly paid work that moves entire families out of poverty.

The problem

Globally, 2 billion people work in the informal sector. In East Africa, it’s around 75% of the population. Women and youth are disproportionately represented. Informal work is typically low paid, insecure and unsafe. The benefits of economic development are only unlocked through access to Good Jobs.

The opportunity

Exceptional informal sector entrepreneurs do exist. We believe there are over 2 million in sub-Saharan Africa with the potential to create 40 million Good Jobs. Currently, they are excluded from investment and support to grow. As a result, they start small and stay small – a huge missed opportunity.
