Our Vision

Over 1 billion people are expected to enter the working age bracket in Africa over the next two decades. The only way to ensure that these people have sufficient work and continue with economic growth is to empower micro and small businesses which account for 80% of the continent’s employment. Pezesha seeks to do this by offering its products and services to help them sustain and grow their businesses. To achieve this vision, we aim to scale our enabler digital financial platform to tackle the $328 Billion Financing gap for MSMEs in Sub Saharan Africa impacting millions of SMEs to drive millions of job opportunities for African youths.
