Sokowatch is transforming communities throughout Africa by revolutionizing access to essential goods and services. By connecting small shops to the digital economy, it fixes inefficient supply chains and provides services that were previously unavailable, such as next day delivery and financing. Some 20,000 retailers in Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda and Rwanda order daily to receive goods quickly and cheaply while accessing financing – many for the first time. Access to financing grows 800% on average.

We have extensive entrepreneurial and software development experience in Africa. We are revolutionizing access to essential goods sold through mom-and-pop shops in Africa through on-demand ordering, delivery and financing.
