Some people have Homejoy, the Samwer’s Europe has Helpling which is quickly spreading across the world. Now, Isamado.co.ke has launched in Kenya and wants to be the country’s first Home Care Services Supermarket to help lazy and busy folks like us clean our apartments, carpets, sofas and even do our laundry.
Not that this is a new service but the bundling together and turning to Internet is what makes it a story here.
This guys want to do it for homes and institutions and just about anyone who has an address.
Isamado which we have no idea what it means btw will also wash your car interios, clean up your office, mattress, give you any professional maid services and just about anything sane you might ask them to.
“At Isamado, our passion is to enable you enjoy life, to achieve your dream of a life free of needless hassles …. so that you can have time for what really matters to you. We do this by offering you a diverse package of quality assured Homecare services, tailored to meet your unique needs,” writes the Nairobi-based startup on its site.
Isamado will give its clients home pick up and delivery options from areas such as Riverside; Kilimani; Lavington; Muthaiga; Upper hill; Karen; Hurlingham; Westlands; Lower Kabete; Gigiri; Runda; Parklands; Kileleshwa; Kitisuru; Nairobi West; Langata; South C; South B; Ngara; Pangani; Kiambu road; Thika road; Buruburu; Donholm; Fedha; Embakasi; Athi River; Kitengela and then expand to other areas as they grow.
They also promise to do pest control, Ironing, kitchen dishes, cooking, baby sitting, grocery shopping and even walking your pet. We don’t know yet if they charge per hour or per day or according to task but we hope they get the word out to sign up as many users as possible. A number of similar startups do similar services and the market is huge and ripe for mroe players but the most successful will have to grasp some business strategies and go to the market than wait for the market to come to them.
