In Summary

Region’s top computer services dealer started off as a repair shop.

Many successful entrepreneurs among members of the Asian community in Kisumu trace their fortunes to inheritance, but not Satwinder Singh and Kuljeet Singh Rupra who have built one of the biggest IT firms in western Kenya.

Unlike his peers who went knocking on office doors for a job opportunity upon graduation and others who took positions in family businesses, Satwinder armed with a Bachelor of Science degree in IT and the love for computers set out to leave a mark in a field he had interest in since childhood.

 While in college, he had exhibited great passion for IT with his colleagues often seeking his help in computer maintenance and repairs. His undying quest to build a name for himself in IT drove him into setting up a repair shop while still in university.

With savings from the repair shop, he opened a cyber café with six computers at the cost of about Sh50,000 in 2009. The cyber doubled up as a workshop where he would offer freelance services.

His competence in IT, he says, attracted many clients seeking computer-based services, a factor he cites as motivation to building the firm. This was to mark the birth of Sumo Computers Limited, now renowned in western Kenya and beyond as one the elite IT solutions provider and for computer hardware sales.
