The creator and CEO of Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg, has arrived in Nairobi after finishing off his visit in Nigeria. His main mission is to meet Kenyan entrepreneurs and check out how mobile money system works.
Here was his statement:
Just landed in Nairobi! I’m here to meet with entrepreneurs and developers, and to learn about mobile money — where Kenya is the world leader.
I’m starting at a place called iHub, where entrepreneurs can build and prototype their ideas. Two of the engineers I met — Fausto and Mark — designed a system to help people use mobile payments to buy small amounts of cooking gas, which is a lot safer and better for the environment than charcoal or kerosene. It’s inspiring to see how engineers here are using mobile money to build businesses and help their community.
