Hundreds of millions of people in sub-Saharan Africa live their lives in extreme poverty and chronic hunger.
We aim to contribute to changing this by being a catalyst for unleashing the transformative entrepreneurial potential of rural people. The key to this is the creation of a set of opportunities for subsistence farming communities through providing them with access to knowledge, finance, technology and markets. This access, needed on a continent-wide scale, requires considerable innovation on the part of all providers and would-be providers.
Small Foundation supports finance and technical assistance providers that improve the business ecosystem for on-farm and off-farm micro, small and medium rural enterprises by expanding access to knowledge, finance, technology, and markets. We support highly-leveraged interventions that do this in ways that are effective, sustainable and scalable.

Help provide opportunities to food-insecure rural African families that enable them to gain economic independence through income generation.
