After 4 years of successfully establishing and growing its online services as leaders in their markets, Africa Internet Group, now Jumia, has become the N°1 E-commerce platform in Africa.
“We founded our companies with a very strong belief: Internet can improve people’s lives in Africa. Uniting all services allows us to better help our customers fulfill their daily aspirations. This is all possible because people connect to our platform to access those services and products in an environment that we have designed for them, addressing their needs and expectations on quality, choice, price, trust and convenience.” said Sacha Poignonnec and Jeremy Hodara, founders and co-CEOs of Jumia.
Customers can now find on Jumia all their needs ; branded products with Jumia , local sellers with Jumia Market (prev. Kaymu), hotel booking with Jumia Travel (Jovago), food delivery with Jumia Food (Hellofood), classifieds with Jumia Deals (Vendito), Jumia House (Lamudi), Jumia Jobs (Everjobs) and Jumia Car (Carmudi), and lastly logistics services with Jumia Services (AIGX).
Furthermore, sellers will also benefit from this move, by getting access to more traffic and to a greater world of opportunities. Everyday, Jumia helps and encourages restaurants, hotels, local sellers, brands, real estate agents, car dealers, large companies and logistic companies to become better, bigger, more efficient, thus creating a positive impact for Africa.
The founders reiterated that, “Operating under the same brand name reinforces the legitimacy of proposing other services to our customers and to our sellers. We want to have one strong brand that is trusted and loved by our customers across Africa”.
"This is a great move for Jumia House Nigeria and all other sister ventures alike. We are excited and optimistic about the future and will continue to strive to make our customers experience with our brand a key priority" said Ogo Onichabor, head of communications of Jumia House Nigeria.
Jumia’s new vision, “Expand your horizons”, expresses the group’s ambition to transform people’s lives through the internet, overcoming the ground market challenges of the continent and giving all Africans the opportunity to access high quality services and products everywhere.
