In a recent interview, we asked Eric Thimba, co-founder and and CEO of Nairobi-based Mookh Africa, to name a business opportunity he would still like to pursue. Mookh is a multi-channel payment gateway that allows African merchants to sell products, tickets, digital content on and collect donations from their social media pages. Here was Thimba’s response:
