The goal of this campaign is to create high visibility, generate interest in the concept and generate qualified traffic on the platform.
The capital raised will cover investments related to the development and marketing campaign for the launch of the product (finalization of the prototype, visibility, animation and loyalty, technical and human resources ...).
It will also be used to finance the online campaign of the new platform.

The company is in constant growth since its creation in March 2017.
Kwatahelp SAS is in the process of finalizing the version number 3 of its Kwatahelp application presenting new modules with payment solutions.

It has a strong reputation on social networks with the Facebook page at more than 10'000 followers.

In its first version, it had managed to glean 4'000 informal operators registered in the database, and more than 500 downloads of the application V1.

It is important to note the financial and time implication of the 15 shareholders who have already made capital increases in August 2017 of an additional 1'770'000 FCFA.
