AlphaJiri Fund

Mission &
History

Mission

The mission of the AlphaJiri investment fund is to contribute to the sustainable development of Sub-Saharan Africa, with an emphasis on Food and Energy.

History

The fund has been investing in African SMEs since 2020, and had allocated a total of USD 6M to 4 SMEs by 31 March 2021.

Theory of change

The AlphaJiri investment fund’s theory of change is predicated on the vast opportunity to preserve the environment and substitute fossil fuels by promoting renewable energy solutions in Sub-Saharan Africa. AlphaJiri’s transformational impact is bolstered by the fund’s further emphasis on sustainable agriculture that is resilient to climate change, the local transformation of primary goods into finished consumer products, and a more efficient value chain from farm to fork.
