Kachile is a social venture dedicated to alleviating poverty and raising environmental consciousness in West Africa
through the targeted application of information and communication technologies. Kachile aims for gradual and lasting social transformation through a number of projects, initially beginning with www.kachile.com, an ecommerce website for local artists in post-conflict Ivory Coast. In a second step, technology centers and educational hubs will be established that will serve as incubators for small businesses. A third focus will be leveraging mobile technology for microcredit access. At Kachile we strive to stimulate entrepreneurial thinking and activity and create jobs for the poor.
