Lakheni is a social enterprise which harnesses the aggregated buying power of low-income communities in order to give them access to discounted staple food while developing micro-retail enterprises (spazas) and supporting Early Childhood Development Centers (crèches). The enterprise will do this through the use of a mobile group-buying platform, which builds its success on the existing social capital linked to crèches within communities.
