Our story


“I was born and raised in a rural family of subsistence farmers in central Senegal where I developed a strong passion for sustainable agriculture. After completing my education in the United States, I naturally return to Africa, the continent with the biggest reserve of arable land, to live this passion and with one dream: to develop solid expertise in agro value chains across the continent and eventually launch an agri business that will revolutionize farmers’ productivity on the continent.

Over the last five years, between my jobs at Stanford SEED and Nutraceutical Corporation, I have studied the value chains of more than 80 agricultural products in more than 20 countries in Africa, have interacted with hundreds of actors in agro value chains, have permanently lived in 4 different countries and spent at least 24 hours in 31 cities, and 117 remote villages of the continent.

After all these experiences, I have come to one conclusion: the biggest challenge facing Africa’s agriculture is not necessarily a production or productivity one, it’s a logistics one. From the mango of southern Senegal to the tomato of Northern Nigeria, from the Shea butter of Northern Ghana to the banana, plantain, and pineapple of various parts of remote Cote d’Ivoire, an important part of Africa’s agricultural output rots for lack of adequate logistics solutions such as cold chain logistics and storage facilities.

RakTak Logistics is our solution to the growing logistical needs we identified through personal experience and research.

In addition, to RakTak Logistics, we also propose RakTak Transportation. RakTak Transportation is our response to a growing problem in almost all major African cities: the substandard and unsafe nature of public transportation systems amid rapid population growth and high urbanization rates, which pollute our planet and kill thousands of valuable lives on the continent every year
