Gideon Mumo

Regional Manager, Credit Administration

Growing up in eastern Kenya, some of my fondest memories come from time spent on my grandparents’ coffee farm, especially to see the activity during the annual harvest season. Now, at Root Capital, I’m excited for the opportunity to bring my experience in commercial lending to have an impact on rural livelihoods for farmers like my grandparents. As the Regional Credit Administration Manager, I’m responsible for ensuring our loans in sub-Saharan Africa and Indonesia comply with local laws and Root Capital’s own credit policies. When I’m not in the office, you can find me traveling to new places or playing soccer at the local field.
