The Power of Human Connections in Africa

Arranging transportation to the inland countries of Africa is a significant challenge we face before launching our operations locally. Due to the potential risk of theft or damage to goods during transportation, logistics companies from developed countries often decline our shipping requests to avoid these risks. Especially, finding a Japanese company that is willing to undertake shipping to South Sudan and Niger, where we have started our operations, is a considerable challenge.

However, we have managed to overcome these difficulties, thanks to our business partners, the former international students. The strength of the network they have built over time is truly remarkable. We have managed to overcome the tough transportation challenges by leveraging their connections.

For our business in Africa, their vibrant network is nothing short of a lifeline. Without this network, our vision would not be realized. Believing in this power, we are determined to continue advancing our business in Africa.
