The mission of Village Enterprise is to equip people living in extreme poverty with the resources to start sustainable businesses.
Village Enterprise plays a unique role in poverty reduction in East Africa. Working with rural entrepreneurs in Kenya and Uganda, the model integrates business training, business mentoring, $150 startup grant, and a business savings program to increase the incomes of those targeted as living in extreme poverty, under the $1.25 a day. Our programs have led to increased incomes, improved nutrition, more children in school, better housing, and hope for the future.
