Fund for African Rural Innovation Promotion

The Mission Statement:

FARIP works with innovative African rural entrepreneurs like a profit-oriented investor who invests in fledgling businesses enabling them to build a business plan in line with the funding guidelines of "social" investors.  However, FARIP is a non-profit organisation seeking to create income generation serving the public good in disadvantaged rural communities in Africa.  

The objective of the foundation as formulated in the charter (translation from german):

The foundation has the objective of creating and promoting sustainable employment and income generating opportunities in poor, underdeveloped rural areas in Africa that are in the interest of the public good and of the local population
