Our Services & Products
Sauti East Africa combines innovative technologies with proven deep expertise to empower women as forces of change in markets, communities, and households.
Why we build technologies for women in trade
Using technology to empower women-led businesses has ripple effects that can help create lasting change for households, communities, and market systems. That’s why we put women as traders, producers, and customers at the centre of our products, services and delivery models.
Featured case studies
We have reached over 66,000 users in “low-technology” environments and conducted gender-sensitive research and technology design in six African countries.

Uncertainty related to the COVID-19 pandemic continued to affect the trading activities of East African cross-border traders in 2021 Q2/Q3.
