Why we invest

Millions of families live in arid, low-productivity lands essentially cut off from the modern economy. BOMA helps the poorest women in those communities establish small businesses that sell local staples. In Northern Kenya, BOMA's work doubles incomes, increases savings and builds resiliency against the shocks that come with poverty and periodic drought. BOMA already covers a region bigger than Ireland, and, in partnership with the Kenyan government, will scale up dramatically in the coming years.
