Cheetah Development Inc.

We are a social investor addressing poverty in Africa through clusters of business-based solutions. Aid gives to the poor: we buy from them.

Company Summary

We have four businesses in the pipeline; two are launched. They address the underlying problems of subsistence farmers, the largest demographic on earth and the majority of the poor. There are two new kinds of finance and several innovations, all designed to serve the "Base of the Pyramid". Our work specializes in the agricultural-food value chain, solving problems of production, distribution, processing and transportation.
