PARTNER

The overarching objective of the African Development Bank (AfDB) Group is to spur sustainable economic development and social progress in its regional member countries (RMCs), thus contributing to poverty reduction.

The Bank Group achieves this objective by:

  • Mobilizing and allocating resources for investment in RMCs; and
  • providing policy advice and technical assistance to support development efforts.

In 2015, all multilateral development institutions have agreed on a same set of objectives, called the Sustainable Development Goals

It was a chance conversation with a friend, bemoaning the lack of availability of natural African products outside the continent, that first inspired Senegalese entrepreneur Birame Sock to start Kwely. The digital marketplace for natural African ingredients, from food items to cosmetics, links local suppliers with international consumers. While still in its infancy, the business is already meeting demand in the United States, Europe and beyond for the best of what Africa has to offer. Birame Sock joins Making a Difference to talk about her start-up and her plans for Kwely’s future.
