Africans, Invest in Social Businesses, Make profits and Fight Poverty in your village or city

Start a social business that makes you wealthier and your community as well at the same time. You become a Bill Gates of your village or city!

A social business is a non-loss, non-dividend business activity designed to address a social objective. The objective will be to overcome poverty, or one or more problems (such as education, health, technology access, and environment) which threaten people and society; not profit maximization.

In a social business, the income generated must cover all costs and at the same time achieve the social objective, such as, healthcare for the poor, housing for the poor, financial services for the poor, nutrition for malnourished children, providing safe drinking water, introducing renewable energy, etc. in a business way.

The social business is the best business in Africa- it is embedded in the African philosophy of UBUNTU – “I Am because We Are” – which means that you cannot feel better unless others get better - we are bound together, we fall together and we rise together. ..
