The Somo Project’s mission is to identify, train, fund and mentor entrepreneurs looking to drive social change by building enterprises in their own low-income urban communities.
The Somo Project invests in people. We believe that talented local teams are best equipped to build sustainable enterprises in their own low-income communities and that these are the people who can best address the problems their communities face.
Access to stable, long-term capital is greatly inadequate and we are committed to changing this by providing long-term partnership, encouraging leaders to dream big and build scalable enterprises that otherwise would not be given a chance.
The Somo Project invests in social entrepreneurs and provides the training and tools to help them build enterprises that change their communities from within. By investing in the right people, we help break the cycle of poverty and can help bring long-term stability to urban slum areas.
