From $2M to $42 Million: Wasoko’s Success Story in Rwanda Sparks Democratic Republic of Congo Expansion

By Victor Oluwole

This big move is the second time they’ve expanded to a new country in 2023, following their successful launch in Zambia earlier this year.

In the DRC, Wasoko will focus on helping small businesses in the city of Goma, the capital of the North Kivu province. They’ve managed to do this with help from the Rwandan government and special trade zones as part of the wider drive to foster regional economic integration.
