A Look At Tsenda And Its Role In Kenya’s Financial Space
Technology is revolutionizing the world. Currently, everything around the world is driven by technology. “Technology is like a train that long left the station. Almost everyone is on board and those not on board risk missing out forever,” says Korir Isaacs, an IT expert at Engage BM.
As technology continues to sweep across the globe, the financial sector has not been left behind. One of the most evolved sector in Kenya is the financial sector, thanks to mobile phones and mobile money platforms such as M-Pesa.
With a mobile phone, one can do everything about a financial transaction from paying for goods and services, depositing cash to a bank account, withdrawing cash from a bank account, checking bank account balance among other transactional processes.
Even with the advance in technology, people still face numerous challenges especially in keeping records of past transactions, harmonizing their transactions, knowing where to put their resources in terms of investments among others.
Young and energetic entrepreneurs in Kenya have, however, worked around the clock to ensure that customers, as they go through their daily transactions, can do it with all the convenience that they want.
Welcome to Tsenda, a financial technology and service solution provider that has focused on the continued innovation around the pain points customers go through daily in the course of their interactions within the space.
