The co-founder of a Kenyan microfinance institution was troubled. Although his company had experienced great success in the past three years, it faced cash flow problems in June 2012. The co-founder had exhausted his personal resources and seeks an investor, local or international banks, or a process improvement program to ensure the company’s long-term success. The co-founder needed to evaluate his options and propose a solution to the other board members.
This case is intended for a graduate or undergraduate course in strategy, sustainability, entrepreneurship, microfinance, or introductory finance in North America and/or Africa and is designed to explore the following themes: an introduction to microfinance: history, business model and market; operating a business in Kenya; selecting and managing shareholders for a social business; and growth strategies and financing decisions for a cash-hungry business.
