STARTHILFEKENIA strives to sustainably strengthen the position of poor women in African society. By providing education, training and access to finance, STARTHILFEKENIA aims to achieve economic and sustainable independence for these women.

“STARTHILFEKENIA” is German and means “Help to start in Kenya”. This means that the purpose of the loans granted by STARTHILFEKENIA is to enable people, especially women, to become self- employed. Therefore STARTHILFEKENIA offers not only finance but also support and training in general economic knowledge and entry to the market. STARTHILFEKENIA is a programme that redistributes the repayments received from one group to another. As such the money remains in Kenya/Africa.
