Tala is thrilled to partner with The Somo Project to help grow impact-driven businesses in Kenya. The Somo Project is a non-profit that provides in-person training and capital to entrepreneurs in Kenya’s most underserved communities. Tala is now providing specialized, long-term business loans to a select group of Somo-trained entrepreneurs to grow their sustainable micro-businesses.

One such entrepreneur is Magda, who founded Mother’s Bakery to equip young, single mothers in Nairobi with a skill to help them become self sustainable. Magda is using her Tala loan to grow the business and train and employ even more young mothers at her bakery.

As part of the partnership, Tala also built an online entrepreneurship curriculum that is available to Tala customers in the form of free online courses on Tala’s online community. The courses cover the basics of starting a successful small business in Kenya, from creating a business plan to marketing and expansion. Through this partnership, Tala is excited to continue helping entrepreneurs across Kenya succeed in building the businesses and lives they want.

Expanding financial access, choice and control for 3 billion underserved globally.
