Somo

Kenya

Somo is the root of a Swahili word meaning “lesson”. The name is inspired by Somo’s mission to create a community around lessons learnt from each other. Somo’s goal is to challenge the status quo by providing pathways for people to create change within their communities. Somo identifies, trains, funds, and mentors entrepreneurs looking to drive social change by building enterprises in their own low-income urban communities.
