We’re bringing health and financial services closer to the people in emerging markets globally.

Through financial inclusion of the 4 billion underserved/underbanked population using mobile money and data science as a toolset, our mission is to transform the medical product retail market in Africa, India, Latin America and other emerging markets by eliminating the barriers of affordability, accessibility and availability of health and financial services globally.

Ideated and conceptualized in March 2018 by a dedicated team of ex-mobile money agency bankers, doctors, pharmacists, engineers and public policy makers, DawaSwift is the leading mobile technology and data science company that delivers medicine from local pharmacies to patients' homes through a tight network of local drivers and also gives small medical loans to customers on its mobile app.

Using the DawaSwift app, customers can make orders from pharmacies, track their purchases (and have medicine delivered to their homes), save money for their emergency needs and earn interest, borrow micro-loans, transfer money to other customers, make payments to participating pharmacies and hospitals, and pay for their other needs.

DawaSwift has its headquarters in Toronto with offices in Nairobi and Montreal.
