Through DUKAPAQ’s mobile and physical Point-of-Sale (POS) system, the company empowers small and medium-sized enterprises (SME’s) to manage their expenses and payments efficiently while also removing any need for clients to have multiple POS solutions, as is often the case in Kenya.

By providing SME’s with streamlined and user-friendly payment and financial management capabilities, DUKAPAQ contributes to SDG 8 (Decent Work and Economic Growth) by enabling enhanced economic productivity and creating new employment opportunities. SME’s are the backbone of not only Kenya’s, but also much of Africa’s economies; DUKAPAQ empowers SME’s to grow, expand their product offerings, and ultimately contribute to sustainable economic development.
DUKAPAQ’s consumer-facing aspect aligns with SDG 9 (Industry, Innovation, and Infrastructure) through the promotion of inclusive and sustainable industrialization. Through the platform, individuals support a diverse range of shops and local businesses, while also fostering enhanced economic resilience. DUKAPAQ continues to facilitate community engagement through a localized loyalty program.
Moreover, DUKAPAQ is committed to adhering to common ESG standards, ensuring that the company has a positive impact on society and the environment. Leadership actively prioritizes data security, privacy, and ethical practices, directly correlating with SDG 16 (Peace, Justice, and Strong Institutions) by promoting transparency, accountability, and responsible business practices.
In conclusion, DUKAPAQ’s innovative mobile and physical POS system not only addresses the financial needs of SME’s and individuals alike in Kenya, but also aligns with key SDG’s and common ESG standards. DUKAPAQ actively contributes to sustainable development and inclusive economic growth in Kenya by driving economic efficiency, promoting local businesses, and adhering to responsible business practices. Investing in DUKAPAQ’s angel funding round presents an opportunity to support a company that is making a meaningful contribution to global SDG’s while also delivering financial value and societal benefits.
