About the CBA: Our Story
Who we are
The Christian Business Angels are Christians with business expertise relevant to the startup & operation of new businesses selected for growth of local employment in our target countries. Each member contributes time plus an annual tax-deductible donation in support of our investment activities.
How we operate
In simple terms, the CBA is active on 2 fronts:
The recruiting of members & resources from others who have been blessed like us, and ,
The deployment of those members & resources to existing & would-be entrepreneurs in developing countries.

How we started
The idea for a group of Christian “Business Angels” was conceived at the end of an entrepreneurs trip to Kenya to view the activities of Compassion International with babies, toddlers, schoolchildren and university students.
A trip with great impact!
Where we operate
As of Q4 of 2020, the CBA is active as follows:
Regional chapters in Europe (Netherlands) and North America (USA) with members from those countries and others, and,
Training & investment in Kenya for the creation of in-country employment to help alleviate poverty.
Our results so far
As of Q4 of 2020, the CBA has accomplished the following:
Development of the paperwork & processes for the deployment of grants, loans and shareholding investment in developing countries, and,
Deployment of annual workshops for the training of over 100 young entrepreneurs,
Supporting the setup and growth of some 65 companies, of which CBA is an active shareholder in 8, and
Through which almost 300 new jobs were created.
With our infrastructure and initial deployments complete, we have focused our efforts on achieving our next goal:
1000+ new jobs / year
Our 5-year plan
While the world was fighting COVID-19, the CBA took advantage of the lull in activity to refine and document its 5 year plans. This document is available for purchase on Amazon, or we are pleased to send prospective members a complimentary copy by filling out this form.
Our long-term goals
Over the long term, CBA plans to expand its presence with new chapters in additional Member locations, and creation of employment in other developing countries.
The international connections of our Members plus our partnership with Compassion International positions us well for global expansion over the long term.
