Fantastic results from our programmes in Kenya

Here's what we achieved in Kenya in 2021 in partnership with DHL Express.

In 2021, thanks to funding from DHL Express, we ran three of our flagship programmes in Kenya – delivered with expert in-country partner Sinapis. Following an external evaluation, we’re pleased to share the project’s fantastic impacts.  

Throughout the year, our HerVenture app, Road to Growth training and newly piloted Road to Leadership training provided thousands of Kenyan women entrepreneurs with a range of learning opportunities depending on their business stage and business training needs. 

3,988 HerVenture users

204 Road to Growth participants

200+ Road to Leadership participants

It’s estimated that sub-Saharan African economies lose $100 billion every year because of the labour market gender gap. Our programmes made a massive impact for participating women entrepreneurs and their businesses that ladders up to economic growth and greater gender equality.

77% of Road to Growth Participants increased their self-confidence

86% of women felt that their network had grown since participating in Road to Growth

54% of HerVenture users said record keeping was the greatest change they effected in their business

75% of those who applied for a loan after Road to Growth were successful

Programme participants also shared their experiences and gave valuable feedback. One woman entrepreneur who participated in Road to Growth said: 

[Road to Growth] is the kind of training to help you to be able to prepare yourself for funding... it was very insightful.

Results from Kenya in 2021

Thank you to our amazing partners for making this possible. This year, we’re continuing our work in Kenya and look forward to sharing many more achievements and supporting thousands more women entrepreneurs, and by extension their families and communities.
