Africa is on a unique growth trajectory. By 2050 the continent will have over 2 billion people, with 1 billion living in rural areas. By 2100, 13 of the top 20 cities in the world will be in Africa. Over the next 100 years, Africa will present massive economic opportunities
Africa is the only continent with the majority of its population still residing in rural areas (53%). In absolute numbers the rural population will continue to grow for the next 30 years.
Africa is young. The average age is under 20 years. Canada's average age is over 40. As the youth of Africa enter the workforce, there is a demographic dividend that can create huge growth in economies and well being if managed properly. According to the FAO, Agriculture and related industries are the most immediate opportunity to create large numbers of jobs for the youth population. Kinvest's model is to create this income through good, stable jobs and eventually dividends as employees vest ownership in the farms.
