Uneku Atawodi launched her crowd-funding platform, Malaik, at #ALN2015 in Marrakech. Learn about this innovative solution as described in Ventures Africa:
“Small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) are currently the main source of job creation in Africa. They account for over 95 percent of firms and 60 to 70 percent of employment across the continent. Despite this massive contribution to the economy, access to finance is still a major obstacle to the growth of SMEs on the continent.
