We provide a unified digital commerce marketplace to facilitate trade among Africa’s informal merchants and leading consumer brands.
MarketForce was formed in Nairobi, Kenya in late 2018 by Tesh Mbaabu and Mesongo Sibuti to digitize retail distribution for emerging markets by enabling consumer brands to manage their field sales activities and grow their distribution channels in Africa.
Today, thousands of informal merchants use MarketForce’s B2B Commerce and Fintech marketplace, RejaReja, to source, order and pay for inventory at any time via interactive mobile channels, and get it delivered directly to their store by the nearest distributor, within hours, every day.
MarketForce also enables merchants to earn more by making them a one-stop-shops for popular digital financial services like buying airtime, paying water & electricity bills and banking & insurance services.
