Small Foundation is working to end extreme poverty and chronic hunger in sub-Saharan Africa by 2030.


We aim to do this by catalysing the proliferation of sustainable income-generating opportunities for extremely poor people in rural areas, most of whom are smallholder farmers.

To that end, 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.
