We’re the connective tissue bonding together ecosystems that identify and fund economically productive opportunities.
Kuunda is the Swahili word for “to create”. We were born from a desire to create a different global financial dynamic; a world in which every financially active participant is able to play a productive role in building their economy.
With a combined 45 years of industry expertise amongst the founding team, we recognised that despite best efforts, the liquidity challenges faced by those in emerging economies were rife and ongoing.
Having witnessed the problem of improper access to liquidity first-hand, predominantly through experiences on the African continent, we set out to discover other markets and market segments that faced the same problem.
Through time spent on the ground and in the field across Africa and Asia, the team came to recognise the pivotal role that agents, small businesses, and consumers play within their respective economies.
Developing solutions to solve people’s access to liquidity was therefore key to resolving economic hardships and to help build resilience and improve economic productivity.
We bring the right partners together, align them to a shared vision, and facilitate the process of working together to develop tailored liquidity solutions.
We persevere through economic & operational shocks because these economies have to as well; and enable participants to continue transacting despite their daily challenges.
We’re committed to involving every participant in the financial ecosystem to make them a contributing part of the economy by providing non-discriminatory credit scoring and lending products.
