What attracted you to Cellulant?
The fact that Cellulant stepped ahead towards where the world is heading career-wise and what they offer ( Digitising payment ) especially focusing on Africa, resonated with me.
Where and what did you study in university?
I schooled at the College of Business Education ( CBE ) in Tanzania. Where I acquired my degree in Business Administration.
What drives you?
My biggest drive in life is to always be self-mastery and have growth in everything I do.
What would you say has been the most exciting part of the job?
The most exciting part of my job is that it is an open working environment, there is always an element of trust and support from my seniors. Where I can call the shots ( make decisions on what I think can be the right way/thing to do for a positive outcome )
What’s the one problem you are solving for clients in this market?
Allowing Local merchants to make their collections/payments easy in an advanced way
What has been the most rewarding moment?
My most rewarding moments come with the daily work I do, by being able to make clients trust the digital payment solutions that Cellulant offers.
What has been the greatest challenge/learning opportunity about the job?
I normally say Cellulant is a business university, you never finish learning new stuff every day from your working environment. At the same time you have to divert the learnings into reality and archive your goals, so it’s like working and learning at the same time.
Who has been the biggest influence in your career & why?
My Boss, Dimmy – Because working with him I get to learn a lot from him in and outside work life. He is a true definition of “Never settle for Less “
What do you love most about working at Cellulant?
Cellulant has an open, conducive working environment because of its culture and the values it upholds. The company also gives growth opportunities given that the digital Marketing space is always evolving. That is why I love working here.
How do you want to be remembered?
I hope one-day Cellulant holds the majority share of payments providers in the Tanzania market, then I will sit down with my children and give them a testimony that I was among the early pioneers of making that possible.
