Grameen Foundation is part of a consortium of organizations that comprise the Africa Health Markets for Equity (AHME). Co-funded by DFID and The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, the partnership will improve health outcomes through the provision of quality private sector health care targeted at the poor in Nigeria, Kenya and Ghana. This will be achieved by increasing the scale and scope of private provider networks and demand-side financing in all three countries.


In Kenya, we are using mobile technology to improve access to financial services and information on agriculture. Through our e-warehouse initiative, we are also developing a mobile-based system to provide information to help smallholder maize farmers properly store their crops post-harvest, and connect them to financial services and markets for final sale.

Sub-Saharan Africa

The vast majority of the world's poorest countries are in Africa, and nearly half of Sub-Saharan Africa’s 910 million people are estimated to live on less than US$1.25 per day. Grameen Foundation has been working in Sub-Saharan Africa for more than a decade, improving the livelihoods of the region’s poor by building relevant mobile-based solutions and increasing access to financial services. Our current work focuses on delivering financial solutions and information services via mobile technology that target the rural poor, with a specific focus on agriculture, health and livelihoods.
