Our mission is to
WHY WE ARE HERE
We built Ruma because we want low income communities to have
access to products and services that would improve their lives.
The challenge of access for these communities is not always due to distance, but also due to their low purchasing power and lack of information access. The goods available in these communities are usually lower quality but at a higher price than the department stores. To make matters worse, they buy almost everything on credit provided by predatory lenders due to the lacking information referring to other alternatives.
We are uniting the power of millions of low income families to provide them with better access to goods and services. We do this by recruiting local entrepreneurs and local leaders to facilitate ordering, payment, and delivery for their neighbors using our technology. We split profits with the entrepreneurs, so the local economy could continue to thrive. We also provide them with a Group Chat app that will enable them to connect with each other and empower the surrounding communities.
By providing access to reliable information and good-quality products through our technology, we believe we can strengthen these communities and support them raise their income and dignity.
