Small Foundation

SAFIN member

Small Foundation is a philanthropic foundation based in Ireland that is working to catalyse and scale income-generating opportunities for people living in extreme poverty in rural sub-Saharan Africa. Small Foundation’s goal is to collaborate with those creating the environment for micro, small and medium enterprises to succeed and deliver opportunity at scale. In particular, we work with intermediaries that increase availability of the finance, social and human capital, knowledge, technology and markets required by a thriving, commercially viable MSME ecosystem.
