AblePursuit aims to be a global voice for sustainable development. We use Custolive, social media, blogs and events to share stories about how MSMEs in Africa strive to achieve sustainability through their products. AblePursuit has started listing MSMEs in Kenya, looking to grow in the rest of Africa.
“We can achieve this by nurturing talents of entrepreneurs behind the MSMEs, and creating ‘business to customer’ experiences for them through the use of communities, stories & data enrichment.” Grace Jayo.
