Idea

Duhqa is a last mile end to end supply chain & distribution technology platform. We connect manufacturers and retailers

Current Status

We have generated $643,380k in revenue
We currently have 987 active retailers using us.

Market

They are SMEs, who own a shop that serves up to 50 people a day. They are 250,000 in Kenya and 15 million in SSA
90% of their customers shop daily.
These shops are managed by a 22-65 age owner who is self employed. They want to see their business grow and make meaningful income.
60% of these shop owners are ladies.
Their customers spend anything between $2-10 daily
Majority have a minimal space to store items they sell and limited finances to purchase a lot. Therefore, the majority procure daily.

Problem or Opportunity

- In Kenya there are 250,000+ informal fragmented shops purchasing products from middleman & wholesalers, resulting in higher prices to these low-income households. 95% shop daily which represents 12 million households in the country. It's a $5.04billion opportunity.
- The Africa opportunity is over $250 billion and expected to grow to over $470 billion by 2023 as the African population grows and many move to trade online.
-Our solution saves our customers time and money. We are able to uplift the stature of small businesses and unlock their potential
