Japhet Makau

Japhet Makau is CEO of the Mama Bahati Foundation (MBF) which has been in operation since 2007. Under Japhet’s leadership, the Foundation now serves thousands of people, including more than 3000 women in central Tanzania, allowing them to become financially literate and so give them the means to run sustainable small businesses and support their families.

A highlight of Japhet's time with MBF has been the award-winning roll-out of the Musoni mobile money system which greatly reduces risk and inefficiencies.
