Mission:

To end extreme poverty in rural Africa through entrepreneurship and innovation.


Extract:

Village Enterprise identifies the extreme poor in Kenya and Uganda and delivers a four part program to build businesses that increase household income: entrepreneurship training, a cash grant, business mentoring and a savings group. Businesses are started in groups of 3 participants which are later organized into Business Savings groups of 10 businesses each. There is strong evidence that the Village Enterprise program leads to a significant and persistent increase in income.
