Problem being addressed:

PPEs are the first line of defence for doctors and health workers treating patients. There is a massive shortage of PPEs throughout the country today, with manufacturers at full capacity. If we don’t have enough PPEs, we lose our troops (doctors) on the ground and effectively lose the war. This is the basic armor they need to fight this battle.

Unique solution:

Fashinza is providing a scalable demand-supply matching platform for all PPE, while providing a working capital advance to suppliers. They are also providing connections with 3rd party logistics to fulfill raw material and final delivery. Fashinza also enables production of complete PPE kits, by onboarding more suppliers in areas of shortage.
