Sub-Saharan Africa

The African continent is on the move. Africa is urbanizing, with 50% of Africans projected to live in cities by 2030. The continent will be disproportionately affected by the effects of climate change, resulting in unprecedented challenges of drought, disease, and food insecurity. And individuals, empowered through access to healthcare, education, and technology, are demanding government transparency like never before. African entrepreneurs have the opportunity to leverage these trends to solve major challenges across the continent.

Paula Storch Tjossem
Financial Inclusion
MasterCard Foundation

The MasterCard Foundation believes that technology can significantly close the access gap to financial products and services for rural clients. We have partnered with Village Capital because we think its support model to start-up ventures is innovative and its impact in sectors, such as education and financial services for the unbanked, is proven.

Myles Lutheran
Executive Director
EFK Group

I have seen the impact of the Village Capital model first-hand at the EFK Group, which just six months after being selected as the top enterprise in the Village Capital/GrowthAfrica: Nairobi program has gone from a small-scale pilot project to an investment-ready company.
