Kim & Kristen Waeber

Kim texts, tweets, and posts in her downtime between cheering on the University of Richmond's men's lacrosse team and the University of Maryland Terrapins. After attending undergrad at University of Maryland where she earned bachelor's degrees in both finance and logistics and was active on campus as president of Delta Delta Delta sorority, she earned an MBA and recently earned a master’s degree from Columbia University in New York. Armed with numerous degrees and 8 years of experience in government contracting, Kim brings her head for business to the kidogo kidogo team. Kim's love of travel and of her little sister have taken her on many great adventures, but establishing kidogo kidogo is proving to be the best one yet.

Kristen got a mobile phone when she was 16 and hasn’t been without it since. It was with her when she earned her private pilot’s license; when she attended finance and marketing classes at the University of Maryland; and when she studied Non-Profit Management at NYU. Her cellphone was always at her side when she lived in Spain, Kenya, Guatemala, and Tanzania  -- inconspicuously helping her out with a Spanish word she didn’t recognize and letting her capture the view from the top of Mount Kilimanjaro. She loved her mobile phone so much that she even joined a leading global telecommunications company and has worked with mobile phone users on four continents. From Dar es Salaam, Kristen is supporting sister Kim, with the hope and expectation that little by little, mobile technology will reach women across Tanzania and change their lives for the better..
