Since 1998


The history of the corporation traces back in 1998 when its two founders started implementing the idea and the basis of what will become the Aksanti Group. Back then, the company was called Aksanti Sana which means “Thank you very much” in Swahili. We were a clothing retailer company with a store in the heart of Kinshasa’s market street, Avenue de l’École.


Today, the Aksanti Sana transformed into Aksanti Group Corporation with more than 4 companies in three major cities of the country.
