Real estate developer Lesedi Developers has continued to break the glass ceiling in the real estate. In 2021, Lesedi launched a series of real estate projects that culminate in the firm clinching multiple awards for its role in the development of real estate sector in Kenya. Lesedi developers and Lesedi Homes clinched two top awards in the National Business Leadership Awards (NaBLA).
The business was awarded as the Company of the Year for 2021.Its founder, Geoffrey Kiragu was also awarded the Young Entrepreneur Achievement Award for 2021.
The NaBLA awards are an initiative of the Inversk Magazine which works to acknowledge and celebrate Kenyan business leaders and enterprises using excellent sustainability strategies to make a true impact on business, society, and the environment.
Since its inception 4 years ago, Lesedi has made a name from offering a lasting solution through affordable homes and land in satellite towns. The company has assisted more than 5,000 Kenyans to own property in Thika, Juja, Machakos, Muranga and Nairobi. Fueling its popularity is the yet another product named Lesedi Club for Land, which is meant to assist low-income earners in getting land at a place of choice. Once a person becomes a member, the only requirement is to deposit Sh. 120,000 within 3, 6 or 12 months and become a land owner.
Businesses are always competing with one another, and the NaBLA awards come as an opportunity for the Lesedi group to compare its business to others and genuinely stand out. The awards will also assist the company to develop its business from the inside out by ensuring that there is something that makes the consumers choose Lesedi group above other real estate developers.
According to Lesedi’s Kevin Wainaina, the value of business awards extends well beyond reputation or foot traffic. Wainaina adds that Lesedi’s continuous victories in the real estate market is testament to its commitment to continue offering affordable real estate solutions to Kenyans. “The awards came at a time when many Kenyans are struggling to get back on their feet as an aftermath of the pandemic, which rendered many individuals jobless and left struggling on how to pay rent among other issues. On our part, we are committed to continued provision of affordable solutions to make it easier for Kenyans to own land and homes,” he says
