Kwanza Tukule means, First, Let’s Eat in Swahili.
Kwanza Tukule is a B2B company that is using a mobile-based, cashless, platform to provide access
to affordable food products to small and medium-size vendors in African urban markets.
- Kwanza Tukule was founded by Khadija Mohamed in 2019. After living and working in London, as a banker and IT consultant, for over 11 years, Khadija decided to move back home to Kenya in 2017.
- Khadija took a sabbatical during which she volunteered with different non-governmental organisations working in low-income areas in Nairobi.
- It is during this period that Khadija came face to face with challenges of low income areas and access
to affordable food.
In 2018 Khadija ran a pilot test for Kwanza Tukule business model and in 2019 Kwanza Tukule was
registered and started operating in low income areas of Nairobi.
