The U.S. African Development Foundation (USADF) is an independent U.S. Government agency established by Congress to invest in African grassroots organizations, entrepreneurs, and small and medium-sized enterprises. USADF's investments promote local economic development by increasing incomes, revenues and jobs and creating pathways to prosperity for marginalized populations and underserved communities.

Over the last five years throughout Africa, with an emphasis on the Horn, Sahel, and Great Lakes regions, USADF has invested more than $117 million dollars directly into over 1,000 African-owned and African-led SMEs, entrepreneurs, and community organizations and impacted over 7 million lives.
