Nairobi-based tycoon Kamal Budhabatti’s Little announces Naivas, Carrefour as new partners

by Omokolade Ajayi

As part of a strategic move to strengthen the operation of its logistics unit, Little Logistics, in the region, Little, a Kenyan technology startup led by Nairobi-based tech entrepreneur Kamal Budhabatti, has announced Foodplus, Carrefour, Naivas, BeyondDeals, and Bulkbox as its new partners.

The partnership comes at a time when consumers are on a wild shopping spree fueled by the “Black Friday” end-of-year promotion campaign launched by major players in the mass market segment and the retail industry.

Through the partnership, customers, and shoppers at Foodplus, Carrefour, Naivas, BeyondDeals, and Bulkbox will be able to have their purchases delivered to the addresses of their choosing.

Little CEO Kamal Budhabhatti stated that the agreement with the new partners is a welcome development for the sector as Little Logistics and enterprise ride-hailing engage in intense and healthy competition.

Budhabatti, who co-founded Little in 2016 with telecom giant Safaricom, has been instrumental in the company’s recent expansion to Uganda, Tanzania, Zambia, and Ethiopia, as well as the commencement of its operations in West African countries such as Ghana and Senegal.

Little has launched several strategic development plans under his leadership. The most recent is the plan to build an office complex for $6 million. Additionally, the company recently disclosed plans to sell up to 25 percent of its outstanding shares over the following three years.

In August, the firm announced plans to construct a $717.4 million ($6 million) office complex in Nairobi, Kenya’s capital city, as it works to boost its talent pool and reach through targeted hiring.

The new office building, whose construction will start the following year and which will be crucial to Little’s strategic expansion efforts, will help to preserve the company’s reputation as a pleasant place to work while also fostering the expansion and growth of its service offerings.
