Pre-Qualification for Women-Owned-Businesses

Over the last 17 years, we have continued to pride ourselves through constant innovation, focused on the needs and demands of our customers. Driving this innovation has been a deliberate and consistent investment in our network and products.

While our investment has continued to grow in line with the evolving needs of our customers, the participation of women-owned businesses in these investments has been falling.

Women make up about half the population, and therefore, are an equally important demographic in the community we operate in and our customer base. In addition, one-in-three small and growing businesses in developing countries are women-led, yet, receive far less than their share of financing.

Familiar of these challenges, the potential of such businesses to grow employment and in line with our commitment to Sustainable Development Goal 10 (Reduce inequality within and among countries), Safaricom seeks to increase the procurement spend to Women-Owned-Businesses to 10% over the next three years.

To achieve this, Safaricom will be involved in advocacy and sensitization for Special Interest Groups (SIGs) to participate more in our sourcing events, capacity development training, mentorship and coaching among other measures.

 We invite Women-Owned-Businesses to apply for pre-qualification in the categories listed below. Successful applicants will receive more consideration when bidding to supply.
