Mashinani - micro-finance + Support groups

Our work is focused in the 6 biggest slums in Nairobi:
Kibera, Mathare, Dandora, Mukuru, Huruma and Korogocho

Over 2 million live there. Roughly half the population of Nairobi.
Each microloan group member goes through an extensive 10 week training program which explains micro loan basics, teaches business skills, and assists the guardians in developing business plans.

Even a simple vegetable stall can provide a gateway for your childrens education and a way upwards.

Stronger guardians are paired with those that are less capable to form intimate groups of 5-10
that will advise and support each other throughout the 6 month loan repayment term.
