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 14,000 users in “low-technology” environments and conducted gender-sensitive research and technology design in six African countries.

In this quarterly report, we have analysed user growth and interactions with the Sauti platforms in Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania and Rwanda. Over the past three months, Sauti gained 2,717 new users. Most of this growth has come from our Tanzania platform which we launched in February earlier this year. In July, we added weather information to the Kenyan and Tanzanian platforms, which resulted in over 20 percent of information requests on each of these platforms in the past quarter.
