Salome Ndunda is a skilled investment professional based in Nairobi, Kenya, who is passionate about catalyzing change in Africa by using impacting investing to empower sustainable African business growth. She is currently an Investment Manager for Incofin.
From the time she was young and watching her father - a coffee farmer - work, she saw firsthand how entrepreneurship can offer sustainable livelihoods to her community. As a child, she ventured into a small business of her own, drying K apples from neighbors' fences and selling them. She used the money she earned to buy books for the children in her village that she played with, and realized she'd found her own way to help people.

“People look for retreats for themselves, in the country, by the coast, or in the hills . . . There is nowhere that a person can find a more peaceful and trouble-free retreat than in his own mind. . . . So constantly give yourself this retreat, and renew yourself.”
