Ffene (Uganda)

Winner of the 2012 Apps4Africa competition, Ffene is a low-cost business management platform that helps small and medium businesses run more efficiently, make better decisions and save money on administrative costs. Founder and developer Titus Mawano of Uganda named the app after the Luganda word for “jackfruit,” a familiar and non-technical brand name to appeal to Ugandan businesses.
