Tapping into the Power of the Crowd

  • Growing businesses in Africa have little access to Finance, Bank Loans, or Credit.
  • Wekeza is revolutionizing the investment process in Africa which is inefficient, limited, and slow.  
  • Wekeza taps into the tradition of crowdfunding among the diverse African diaspora where entire communities pool together resources to invest.
  • Wekeza is updating this crowdfunding business model to match our age of iOS & Android.
