Our approach is to start small, build a relationship, and expand from there.
To apply for financing from Shuraako, you must meet the following criteria.
- Somali-based business
- Micro, small or medium sized enterprise (0-300 employees)
- Companies must have at least a one (1) year operating track record and be involved in a business sector that is not under embargo as published and amended from time to time by the United Nations or European Union
- Socially and environmentally responsible enterprise that drives job creation and has a compelling business model
- Funding to date has ranged between USD $5,000 to USD $750,000, based on the strength of the proposal. Promising investments requiring greater amounts of capital will be considered. We do not provide finance for working capital.
