Village Enterprise works in Uganda and Kenya to identify individuals who live in extreme poverty, have no prior business experience, and are unable to provide to their family's basic needs. They provide micro-grants as seed capital and ongoing training to enable these individuals to start their own businesses. Village Enterprise is headquartered right here in San Carlos and was founded in 1987 by Trinity members Brian Lehman and Joan Hastens. Since 1987, Village Enterprise has started more than 33,000 businesses, trained more than 136,000 entrepreneurs and improved the lives of more than 700,000 women, children, and men. We have had our members travel to Africa to see their work and currently Trinity member Pat Brown serves on their board.
