Receiving correspondences in Kenya might be a real challenge. That’s because addresses (street, number, etc) are not available for every one.
For many years, people have been counting on PO boxes—rented post office lockable boxes—many times shared with other people, in a centralized way.
The problems naturally arise, once your packages might be accessed by unwanted people and there is no warning system to communicate you got a mail.
That’s exactly the problem MPost is tackling with its solution.
Through a unique address code—derived from users’ phone numbers—MPost provides privacy and, at the same time, communication about new packages deliveries.
In the 16th episode of The Traction Stage Podcast, Twahir Mohamed told me how he and his partner developed MPost and how they are impacting the lives of more than 45,000 users.
