May 2023 Quarterly Briefing

Thanks to our supporters, Talanton has invested in our 12th high-impact, growth-stage business plus reinvested in another portfolio business!

Talanton’s investment portfolio across four East African countries now includes twelve values-aligned, high-growth businesses plus four follow-on investments, with other investments on the horizon. Many thousands of jobs are being added and supported through Talanton to bring Hope and transform lives. During 2022 alone: • 10,936 farmer and direct supplier jobs were added, an increase of 70% over 2021 • 797 full-time jobs were added, an increase of 117% over 2021 • 2,652 part-time and seasonal jobs were added, an increase of 269% over 2021 In addition to the above jobs, two Talanton investments provide tens of thousands of jobs in the form of employment beneficiaries. These include students, plus merchants and businesses that benefit indirectly - and often exist solely - from these two investments. It was such a joy to be at the Bringing Hope Celebration 2023 LIVE! at the Glen Eyrie Castle in Colorado Springs this month! This event was full of Christian fellowship and nearly 100 attendees including investors, donors, partners, supporters, board and team members celebrated Talanton’s five-year anniversary!

Our latest investment is Kivu Tilapia Farm, the largest tilapia producer in Rwanda

with optimal farming conditions and huge scaling potential.
