Cherehani Africa Case Study


Cherehani Africa is an excellent example of a Rockflower partner who benefitted from relatively small early seed investment and is now on track to become one of Kenya’s leaders in democratizing entrepreneurship for women in East Africa. We recognised early on their potential and their vision for scale.

Robert Mboya, COO and Co Founder of Cherehani Africa:

Rockflower’s approach to partnering with social enterprises goes beyond financial support. When you talk to their team you get the feeling that they have put themselves in your shoes and are part of the journey for the long-term.

Cherehani Africa's vision is to democratize entrepreneurship by building products and services that make it easier for women and girls to start and run sustainable businesses. Their goals are deeply aligned with Rockflower’s Five Keys approach to holistically address the challenges facing women and girls especially through economic empowerment.
