Suraj Gudka



Suraj comes from an entrepreneurial Indian family. He was born and brought up in Nairobi and has a BSc in Accounting and Finance from the London School of Economics. He is combining his passion of helping his society with his passion of business by being a Social Entrepreneur. Suraj started SokoText right after graduating. When not working, he likes to read crime-fiction and listen to trance and classical music.


SokoText helps micro-entrepreneurs with grocery stalls based in slums and low income areas in Nairobi, Kenya. SokoText provides an SMS based pre-ordering service through which the micro-entrepreneurs place daily orders. The orders are procured from farmers around the city and are ready for collection every morning at SokoText outlets based in city neighbourhoods. Our customers save more than 3 hours and reduce their costs by 10% everyday because they no longer have to go to far away markets to get their daily stock of inventory.
