Kenya: Jobsearching using mobile phone

Categories: Sub-Saharan Africa, Kenya, Development, Technology

Ethan writes about Kazi560, a jobsearching service via mobile phone in Kenya [1]: “Unemployment is a major problem in Kenya, especially in informal settlements. A creative solution, called Kazi560, is having great success matching blue-collar workers with jobs via SMS. If you’re a laborer, you can spend an amazing amount of your time wandering from one worksite to another, looking for opportunities.”
