Pezesha exists to give choice, inclusion and affordable digital financial services to low-income borrowers in Africa to bring freedom, equality and hope to them and their communities to be part of the formal financial system. We are revolutionising the way micro businesses access affordable credit using data analytics.

Pezesha is led by a team of passionate individuals and advisors with diverse experience in Credit, Fintech, Telecommunications, Regulation and building successful tech startups in Kenya and across other emerging markets.

We are based in Nairobi, Kenya.

We are looking for young, hungry and curious minds to join us as they grow up their career ladders.

Don’t wait until you graduate in order to start building your career. We turn your expectations into experience. All the successful CEOs and leaders out there, are different in that, they found their purpose early- they saw an opportunity to learn and they grabbed it with both hands. They were ready to start from somewhere. Their goal was to learn as much as possible in the early days of their career in order to remain competitive in the long term.

Pezesha has an internship program called “Ezesha your skills”  targeted mainly to 4th year University students and also graduates who are looking for early stage experience to develop cutting edge skills in their career ladder.  We have partnered with some local Universities such as JKUAT to empower young, hungry individuals willing to get their hands dirty and in turn get experience that counts.

When you intern with us, you are not just giving but mostly receiving value that includes but not limited to:

  1. Weekly mentorship from our CEO, senior management and other linkages to experts in the industry
  2. You gain first hand all round experience that sets you apart from the others in the ever competitive market
  3. You also get ownership in projects you work on with guidance from your assigned supervisor
  4. Once in a while we have Pizza Fridays and happy hour to mingle and network, this will shape your soft skills in a huge way besides having FREE pizza and drinks 😉
  5. We provide our interns with compensation to ensure they are comfortable and productive without having to worry about the basic needs.
