All businesses should be empowered with simple tools to give them the means to succeed.
We believe in making it simpler for businesses to operate. That’s been our goal since 2012, when we partnered with Safaricom to bring Lipa Na M-Pesa Buy Goods service to small and medium businesses throughout Kenya.
While we remain true to helping thousands of businesses to accept digital payments, our efforts have not stopped there. We have gone a step further to understand the challenges that might hinder an entrepreneur who runs a boutique, restaurant or book store from growing. We get these insights by listening to our customers and in turn, use the feedback to build better products for any business to prosper.
Our motivation lies in building technology that is truly simple to use. From making it easier for a business to accept payments, access credit without putting obstacles, helping them to market to their customers through SMS or easily pay their suppliers, we have taken time to design our product to make it simple for any business to run, grow and prosper.
