Providing support to start a small business

The level of unemployment in Kenya is very high and people are really struggling to pay their rent, buy food and pay school fees. People who were previously doing well have now lost their jobs during Covid or their small businesses have collapsed due to the poor economy. They can no longer cope. 

We have started 23 new small businesses in the past few months to help people become independent and support themselves. The average business start-up cost is £215. Please support this initiative and help people help themselves! Please donate here if you would like to support. The businesses are in Nairobi, Kakamega, Nakuru, Kisii and Meru.

We are so happy that a lot of these businesses are already doing well. We have helped with rent for their stall / shop, sewing machines for the tailoring businesses, stock and carpentry if needed for shelves and displays. In addition, we have also helped with emergency aid for house rent, food or fees to help them while they get back on their feet.

We are supporting people doing tailoring; selling clothes and shoes; cooking business making mandazi, chapatti, maize and beans; beauty parlour with hairdressing and Shellac nails; phone accessories shop and Mpesa agent; barber; a cereals business a general shop; a roasted maize vendor and other smaller businesses selling vegetables, sesame seeds, fruits and nuts.
