Vuleka is a grassroots economic development initiative focused on growing townships based businesses (both formal & Informal).
Through our Vuleka App we facilitate bulk purchases of goods sold by township based businesses. Our large network of township based businesses form a collective purchase power that will enable us to negotiate better deals when buying in bulk.
We pass this saving onto the traders. The orders then get delivered to them, saving them time and money. The app is linked to a virtual wallet meaning that purchases are cashless. The Vuleka App has 2 user interfaces, one for the the business owner where he makes the orders/purchases and pays for them with the virtual wallet after delivery. Youth Marketers to play an instrumental role to assist business owners who aren’t tech savvy, and educate them to take orders and educate them on stock management. .Visit The Vuleka Site
