Somo expansion!

Applicants in Kisumu
Applicants in Kisumu

Hi Somo supporters,

We are excited to announce we will be launching Somo in Kisumu (western Kenya) in August!

As well, we have doubled the number of trainees we work with in Nairobi. Trainings are currently running in both our Kibera and Korogocho branches with 30 aspiring entrepreneurs.

With our most recent investments in our Cohort 9 entrepreneurs we now have a portfolio of 44 businesses across 8 different informal settlements in Nairobi.

Looking forward to sending you more updates through our newsletter.  If you haven't yet, please sign-up through our website: https://www.thesomoproject.org/

Many thanks,

The Somo team

p.s. check out our founder, Amelia, talking about how we identify entrepreneurs that are truly committed to their social impact goals.
