West Africa:
the high-potential region

The economic development of West African nations – and with them people’s living conditions and opportunities – is extremely dynamic and characterised by exceptional change perspectives. With an average GDP growth of over five percent in recent years, these are the markets of tomorrow. On the other hand, this is a region of great complexity and heterogeneity with regard to political and bureaucratic structures, which still makes it difficult for foreign companies to gain a foothold in these markets. Kenneh West Africa Trade closes this gap for you.

We support you in marketing your new or used products in the West African region – reliably, competently and highly networked.


Kenneh takes you there.

We see ourselves as an active link between German companies and West African trading partners. With our roots and our active network in West Africa, we can today look back on seven years of successful intercontinental cooperation. Our mission is to bring together German trading enterprises and West African buyer structures so as to promote the sustainable economic development of all parties. We open up the market potential of West Africa for German businesses and, on the African side, promote the flow of high-quality goods and merchandise at fair prices – and thus the growth of new industries and purchasing structures.


We assume
your export.

Do you want to place your West African product sales in safe, capable hands? We’re here for you! From logistic handling to local marketing and distribution – with our proven network of local sales partners, we can place your products directly in the regional target markets. We handle the entire process for you: planning and calculation, customs formalities, transport as well as roll-out and payment handling with our African sales partners – all using professional structures and with maximum transparency. For you, the process is no more complex than an intra-European sales transaction.

Direct sales

We clear your way

With our own African roots and our long-standing business relationships – particularly in Guinea, Liberia, Mali and Sierra Leone – we’ll be happy to provide you with the key factors for a successful market entry as a service. By means of ongoing market analyses and demand screenings coupled with communicative, coordination and, above all, cultural skills, we make your West African expansion efforts a plannable project.

Sales agency

Who we are.

At Kenneh West Africa Trade we strive not only to support German companies in their export activities but also make a sustained contribution to the economic and employment region of West Africa through the systematic promotion of intercontinental cooperation and the transfer of urgently needed high-quality products: fair trade with quality products, creating futures, helping people to help themselves, promoting independence, optimising processes and creating and expanding jobs. This sums up both our philosophy and our commitment.


Our strength:
our partners.

The continuing structural development of West Africa is vital: we know this from our own experience. Together with our partner Makahn International Service, we are actively working to strengthen the economic cooperation between Germany and the West African region and to leverage the resulting synergies. Makahn International, based in Conakry, Guinea, maintains numerous local business contacts and distribution cooperation arrangements. This close contact ensures that we can deliver end-to-end coordination of your product exports and trade projects that is continuously monitored on both sides.


Let’s talk!

You have products that you want to market in Africa. And we know how to do that – and how large the respective export potential is. We will be happy to talk to explore the opportunities and possibilities of cooperation.
