Enviu has a 14-year track record of running projects and building social ventures in the domains of financial inclusion, circular economy, and food security. Enviu founded People’s Pension Holding with funding and support from the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Cordaid Foundation, and the Achmea Foundation.
In sub-Saharan Africa, over 90% of the population are not covered by any pension scheme, and with the number of people over 60 set to triple by 2050 this problem becomes enormous. Enviu and People’s Pension Holding are determined to provide this security net for farmers. Enviu founded PPH in 2015, offering pensions to the informal sector in Ghana, focusing on the 2.5 million cocoa farmers and has started to see traction. This project will translate the learnings from Ghana to East Africa resulting in a pension pilot operating within rural Rwanda.
