Three Kenyans founded a startup called Pesabot , a platform that helps businesses to develop chat-bots on Telegram and Facebook Messenger.
This was in September 2016 after they had been consultanting for a while, developing portals and web projects for a variety of customers including the Kenya government.
The initial approach was helping customers manage their customer service for insurance companies and banking, but this was a hard nut to crack.
Companies liked the idea but ended up not coming on board due to the slow process. later, the trio found out that Kenyans do a lot of e-commerce on Facebook and so in August 2017 they developed a bot service based on pesabot known as biasharabot.
Biasharabot targets small online businesses where both sellers and buyers enjoy a good user interface & business platform. It got a graphical dashboard with a few buttons such as add product, payment mode e.t.c.
Customers are able to start-up for free however sellers are charged Ksh.3000 monthly fee.
