Enterprises Creating Change

Kua is a Swahili word meaning to grow, to develop or to mature.

Kua Ventures embodies this concept of growth through impact investing in faith driven businesses that not only deliver a positive social or environmental change, but also display the love of Christ through creation of quality jobs, and activating a community for personal, professional, and spiritual growth for everyone involved.
