Impact investments in East Africa
In 2017, we joined a group of impact investors, commercial investors and angel investors investing in the seed round of the high profile start-up Kasha.
Kasha is an innovative e-commerce business in East Africa for women's health, personal care and beauty products built for urban and rural areas. With custom technology that enables e-commerce over a basic mobile phone without internet access or smartphone, Kasha enables confidential order and delivery of key health and personal care products such as contraceptives and menstrual care. The goal of Kasha is to disrupt the way that women in emerging markets purchase health products and to democratize that access for all. The vision is that one day millions of women around the world in emerging markets will see Kasha as the trusted go-to place for health and well-being products and services for themselves and their families.
