SME enabler solutions

We design and implement projects/ programs that promote job creation and entrepreneurship

OUR FOCUS

Gig Worker Platforms
The rise of the gig economy presents a $2.7B opportunity in 2025. We believe that technological advancements will significantly improve the productivity of capital and labour, benefiting consumers by lowering prices of goods and services. Our work includes developing multi-sided technology platforms that provide access to sustainable digital employment for youth via our value chain based model. 
Capacity Development Programs
We work with businesses to develop their internal capabilities to achieve their goals by supporting them in various areas of operations. Using our facilitation approach, the programs address areas such as Strategic and Operational Planning, Risk Management, as well as Management and Leadership Development.

The challenge

The AJIRA Digital Program is a Government initiative launched and driven by the Ministry of Information, Communications and Technology (MOICT). Its mandate is to empower millions of young Kenyans to access Digital work opportunities in the Gig and Freelancing economy through Training and Demand linkages. eMobilis, the principle MOICT partner, needed to operationalize 106 Constituency Innovation Hubs established across Kenya so Kenyan youth could  access connectivity, computer equipment, resources, training, mentorship and support. 

Our Impact

We designed a guiding framework of procedures, processes and protocol in an operations manual that could be used across all 106 centers to ensure that the quality of service delivery could be replicated across the centers while safeguarding the continuity of the Ajira Digital Program. 

The challenge

As one of the leading financial institutions in Kenya, SBM bank has a long history of enabling business development for SMEs. Post COVID 19, unsecured financing continues to be a critical lifeline for many yet at the same time historical data has been rendered less effective as a vetting tool for financial institutions. SBM bank were looking for alternative data points that would guide them in their decisions around disbursement of unsecured loans to SMEs. 

Our Impact

We designed training content for Business Continuity Planning for SMEs in the SBM ecosystem. Feedback from the SMEs in the cohorts so far has been the ability to review their business models and create contingency plans in various strategic business areas in their operation. For some, it has also helped the businesses identify opportunities presented by  the current landscape and possible new avenues to leverage using their existing business infrastructure and resources. 

The challenge

In Africa, high informality, poor social protection schemes and a growing youth population has led to perpetual joblessness in the region at a 77% rate. The rate of technological advancements continues to define how we work, but on the continent, barriers like insufficient levels of skill, productivity and competitiveness prevail. Educated youth end up seeking refuge in the informal economy with approximately one-third with tertiary education venturing into the informal sector.

Our Impact

In partnership with Go.Digital, we developed a digital platform that consolidates talent and creates a lucrative opportunity to improve the online consumer experience, leading to a host of service innovation opportunities via  e-commerce. 

The goal is to create a seamless experience from Content-Service-Purchase-Logistics through a value chain service business model, thereby creating employment opportunities for 1 million youth across Africa.
