Sauti’s Quarterly User Insights Report: July – September 2020

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. In the report we also analyse the top market and commodity prices requested on each platform, finding that Dry Maize is the most popular commodity for our users in Kenya, Uganda and Tanzania. We also include the top exchange directions from the platforms which provides us with insight on cross-border trade interactions, as well as incident reports at each border.
