The Committee together with its project partner, the Lagos Chamber of Commerce and Industry (LCCI) and Jumia seek to prepare and onboard 10,000 Nigerian MSMEs onto the virtual marketplace over the next two years in the pilot project to increase the visibility of the Made-in-Nigeria brand and support the transformation of Nigeria into Africa’s manufacturing hub and preferred choice for products and services.

Nigerian MSMEs are now stepping up their game

From date syrups to cake mix, Nigerian MSMEs are now stepping up their game as they prepare to take on the African market following the support of the project partners that is helping set them up on this journey.

The first cohort of entrepreneurs were recently trained and onboarded on the Jumia Nigeria e-commerce platform.

In onboarding these SMMEs onto these e-commerce platforms, we hope to help them expand their market reach to customers across Africa at the click of a button.

Get onboarded, scale exports to Africa and beyond

Opportunity is opened for MSMEs desiring to leverage the platform to grow their goals. Would you like to join the next cohort of entrepreneurs to be onboarded?
