WHY WE ARE HERE
A Letter from Our Leader
We built Ruma because we want low income communities to have
access to products and services that would improve their lives.
The challenge of access for these communities is not always due to distance, but also
due to their low purchasing power. The goods available in these communities are usually
lower quality but at a higher price than the department stores. To make matters worse,
they buy almost everything on credit provided by predatory lenders.
We are uniting the purchasing power of millions of low income families to provide them
with better access to goods and services. We do this by recruiting local entrepreneurs
to facilitate ordering, payment, and delivery for their neighbors using our technology.
We split profits with the entrepreneurs, so the local economy could continue to thrive.
