SokoText

SokoText helps micro-entrepreneurs with grocery stalls based in slums and low income areas in Nairobi, Kenya. SokoText provides an SMS based pre-ordering service through which the micro-entrepreneurs place daily orders. The orders are procured from farmers around the city and are ready for collection every morning at SokoText outlets based in city neighbourhoods. Our customers save more than 3 hours and reduce their costs by 10% everyday because they no longer have to go to far away markets to get their daily stock of inventory.

SokoText was a WhatWorks urban innovation showcase at the NewCities Summit 2015 in Jakarta, Indonesia and is now part of our Global Urban Innovators Alumni.
