Besides the need for relevant content development and building our data analytics team, it is Kumbaya’s aim building a strong network of partners in the markets it serves through the Telcom and satellite operators.

Other examples by allowing a transparent ledger, Blockchain prevents falsified land deeds from stealing the land of small farmers.
