Gone are the days where we would have to walk around and look for a cab and then on top of that spend 10 minutes bargaining for reasonable fares.
Nowadays, thanks to new innovations like Uber and Little Cabs, you can order a cab from your phone within seconds; get a fair estimate and full details on your driver. Convenience has become the main driver of such kind of technologies in today’s world; people want convenience at an affordable price.
It is for this reason that SafiSafi, a local company founded by two individuals has come up with a new platform that offers services ranging from cleaning, handyman, plumber and electricians to Nairobians. With rates starting from Kshs.300 an hour, the company will bring these services straight to your doorstep.
The company uses the same concept as Uber and it says it ensure all its services are established on three core building blocks, Trust, Quality, and Convenience. This means there will be no need to go looking for “mama wa nguo”, start negotiating the price and then risk them ‘misplacing’ some of your garments.
According to the founders, they ensure that all professionals we work with are checked out and verified through our stringent vetting processes. Thereafter, they undergo vigorous training to ensure that they deliver a standardized quality service. They have developed a quick and easy booking system to ensure customers get a trusted and trained professional to with the least effort from their side.
SafiSafi was founded by two individuals, who returned to Kenya after living abroad for over ten years. After frustratingly searching for trustworthy and reliable part-time cleaners and general handymen, they quickly realized that this was a lot harder than they initially thought. SafiSafi was hatched at that moment.
Jay Shah, the Co-founder of SafiSafi aims to disrupt the traditional informal market of getting professionals to your doorstep by using a standardized product.
