These income-generating social businesses refer not to the extent to which the companies themselves create (and reinvest) their profits but rather that part of their social mission is to invest and stimulate income generation for their customers or target from.
For instance, Penda Health, which we featured on SocialBusiness.org and also interviewed its co-founder, Stephanie Koczela, works as a for-profit organization while at the same time creating jobs and income in the health care industry for Kenyan women. Other examples are in the fashion industry and non-profit industries.
From regional non-profit entities to healthy community sales, income-generating social businesses, while the means themselves may vary, attempt first of all to develop some idea of creating a healthy economic community well-being.
