Nairobi, January 12, 2022 – 4G CAPITAL GROUP Limited (“4G CAPITAL”), a market leader in technology-driven financial inclusion in Kenya and Uganda, is honoured to receive a Real Leaders Impact Award yet again as we push on with our key role in bridging the finance gap to advance micro, small and medium businesses (MSMEs).
Real Leaders is likewise thrilled to announce the newly selected winners of its 2022 Top Impact Companies worldwide.
Business leaders across the globe are rapidly discovering that to be competitive – and to grow and thrive – they must forgo shortsighted thinking in favour of a farsighted vision that takes into account their company’s social and environmental impact. We are excited to welcome new and old companies alike to the impact movement and into the Real Leaders Impact Awards community.
- Mark Van Ness, Founder of Real Leaders
The 2022 list features a mix of respected impact brands of all sizes and from various industries, including Traditional Medicinals, Hannon Armstrong and Ocean Brands, and Allbirds, Danone, and Warby Parker.
We are thrilled to be recognized by Real Leaders among our B-Corporation community colleagues. 2021 saw 4G Capital lend over $81M to traditionally excluded micro enterprises, focusing on delivering SDG impact for women, youth and rural communities. By aligning our own ESG policies and success with that of our clients we have seen our portfolio almost double with similar customer success results. This recognition means the world to us as we seek to build the digital infrastructure to transition informal traders to the formal economy on fair and equitable terms.
- Wayne Hennessy-Barrett, CEO & Founder of 4G Capital
A virtual ceremony will be held on February 24, 2022, to honour the winners. It will feature a keynote from Peter Diamandis, founder and executive chair of the XPRIZE Foundation and executive founder of Singularity University.
