EMPOWERING BUSINESS OWNERS, AROUND THE WORLDGIVING BACK

We believe that working together, we can build a better future for everyone. We’re talking about more than just consulting and marketing.

As a truly virtual agency, we embrace the idea of global interconnectedness and the possibility of changing someone’s life for the better – wherever they may be in the world.

Supporting entrepreneurs is what we enjoy most.

Helping businesses grow is in our DNA.

We don’t believe in making an annual charitable donation and calling it quits. We want to help make the world we live in better for everyone, everyday.

“Compassion is even more powerful than courage. Sure, with courage you can conquer a world – but only with compassion can you heal and build it.” – Rasheed Ogunlaru

Zidisha

For every project we start, we give a loan to an entrepreneur in a developing country to grow their business too.

Through Zidisha, we offer direct peer-to-peer loans to business owners in developing countries. This way, entrepreneurs that need a loan bypass expensive local banks and pay minimal interest. 

We never withdraw the loan money when it’s paid back. Instead, we re-lend to another entrepreneur so the effect compounds over the years.

A core value of ours is a growth mindset and one of my favourite times each week is choosing a new business venture to support.  With Zidisha being direct lending, I can fund the great growth ideas that will continue to improve not only the entrepreneur’s life but also their community.” – Oracle Tree Founder Marama Carmichael

Daughty Were - Bakery owner in Kenya, now employing 11 people

Daughty started her business 4 years ago with just herself and a firewood oven.
Using loans to expand and improve, Daughty was able to buy an electric oven so she had even heat and a higher quality product.

She then bought cake pans to increase her product line, then the material to make a paraffin oven (perfect for the frequent blackouts in her neighbourhood).

Last, she purchased a van so she can deliver to her customers. Daughty really is an inspiration and has achieved so much.

You can learn more about Zidisha on their website.
