Our CEO, Hilda Moraa was honoured to meet with Melinda Gates while she was visiting Nairobi in early November 2019, to better understand the tech ecosystem in Kenya and how tech women play a role in driving its success, including challenges women face in building successful tech startups. In the session key opportunities and ideas to reach more women  were also openly discussed including the Pezesha’s mission to impact millions of underserved women MSMEs across Africa with affordable financial services through its scalable marketplace.

It was a humbling opportunity for our CEO and Pezesha meeting Melinda Gates, such moments go down in history to inspire many other young women out there to believe in themselves and aim for the sky.

Here are some of the photos of the session our CEO, Hilda Moraa shared with Melinda Gates.
