Numida Technologies
Kampala, Uganda
Mina has spent most of the past seven years working in Zambia, Uganda and Ghana to improve opportunities for smallholder farmers and African agribusinesses. His bottom line that service is love in action has guided him to live a life of service to those whose potential is systemically constrained. Mina is currently an Acumen Global Fellow, and the COO of SiembraViva; an e-commerce company connecting resource-poor Colombian organic farmers with urban consumers. He is also a Co-Founder and the Chairman of Numida Technologies; a financial inclusion startup that connects small African businesses with lenders, through a mobile application that helps them build their financial track-records. Prior to this Mina was Co-Founder and Director of Business Development for Kulemela Investments where he invested in small Ghanaian agribusinesses that had an impact on food security. Mina is a long-time EWBer and was a market development strategist in Ghana and Uganda where he identified leverage points for social and financial impact in agriculture value chains. He holds a Bachelor of Applied Science in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Toronto.
