Where We Operate

Missio Invest has issued loans to 36 agribusinesses across six countries (Nigeria, Kenya, Uganda, Zambia, Malawi, Tanzania) and is expanding to Rwanda, Ethiopia, Ghana and other countries in West Africa in the near term.

Missio Invest is expanding across Africa and, in the future, to South Asia and Latin America as well. Our scope has also expanded to include Church-owned health and education enterprises and local financial institutions whose on-the-ground staff and infrastructure enable us to reach a broader segment of beneficiaries.
