About the organization
We are a young and expanding non-profit organization incorporated in Canada.
Currently operational in Kenya, Mkono provides young entrepreneurs access to affordable capital and mentorship. Simply put, we offer interest-free loans and mentorship sessions provided by our Mkono Allies, young professionals with relevant expertise from all around the world, to explore specific topics to grow their business. Driving impact at Mkono goes beyond financial support as we believe that capital well invested multiplies its impact.
At Mkono, we believe that young entrepreneurs in low income countries hold the potential to achieve lasting change. These entrepreneurs are well positioned to drive social and economic benefits by creating employment or by developing solutions tailored to their reality. But no significant change can be achieved alone. That’s why, at Mkono, we connect people from all over the world to share knowledge and resources, in an effort to empower young entrepreneurs to bring the change they envision.
