Bismart becomes the first company in Kenya to use Blockchain technology, which is an incorruptible distributed digital ledger/FILE

NAIROBI, Kenya, Jul 25 – She left a high paying job in one of Kenya’s biggest insurance companies to start Bismart Insurance.

Armed only with her experience in the industry, Eunice Maina pursued her dream of increasing insurance uptake in Kenya after seeing the mismatch between buying and selling of insurance policies.

One year after starting Bismart Insurance, Maina closed an investment from German-based Greentech Capital.
