Fraym was built to help fast-growing companies, development organizations, and government agencies succeed in Africa. Before Fraym, decision-makers had to rely on anecdotes, gut feel, or expensive primary data collection to make critical decisions. Fraym offers a better way: we provide localized data on communities and populations across all of Africa.

To do this, we weave together household survey data and satellite imagery with proprietary machine learning algorithms to produce hyper-local insights across the continent. This best-in-class data platform helps companies and organizations understand and reach specific populations.
