We are humbled and excited to be named the winner of the Kenyan leg of the Seedstars World competition, earning a spot in the global final and the chance to pitch for US$500,000 in equity investment.
As we gear our next wave of growth and scale of impacting millions of underserved MSMEs across Africa, we believe that the Seedstars opportunity has knocked at the right time.
Our mission at Pezesha is to provide meaningful financial inclusion to the underserved through our universal digital financial marketplace that starts with financial education and ends with financial empowerment. Customers are educated on the use of credit as a wealth creation tool, contributing to long-term impact and growth up the financial ladder.
To this end, we have impacted thousands of customers by connecting them with affordable financial services, in which more than 40% have received credit scores for the first time ever through our digital financial ecosystem.
