“As we celebrate our 9th Anniversary, we will be offering consumers amazing deals of up to 50% off on essentials like sugar, maize flour and cooking oil. The campaign this year highlights the increasingly important role that the e-commerce industry is playing in the daily lives of consumers.” said Jumia Kenya CEO, Sam Chappatte.
For 9 years, the company continues to provide convenience to consumers and with the COVID-19 pandemic, it has provided consumers access to basic and essential products and services to allow them to stay safe. The constraint enforced on the global economy by COVID-19 has made e-Commerce an essential service to consumers in urban, remote, and rural areas. Companies across the country are also turning to ecommerce as a channel to improve their sales and compensate for disruption to traditional offline channels.
E-commerce is also creating new opportunities for SMEs to grow, and job opportunities for a new generation to thrive.
