This month, Jumia turns 1 year old in Ghana. We have grown so quickly over the past year, it has been quite a ride, and can now proudly claim to be the No.1 online shopping mall in Ghana. We couldn't be happier, nor could we have made it without the support and hardwork of our team, partners, customers and friends in the media
From a team of one person and a laptop, the company has grown to over 50 members now and it is still adding to that number on a rapid basis.
Today, we have close to 10,000 products online, with everything from household products, fashion from major brands, electronics and phones such as Infinix and Samsung. Retail giants such as Orca, Palace and Melcom have all taken up shop on the Jumia platform. This goes a long way to show that online shopping is here to stay
To show our appreciation, we are offering all our customers 10% off this week (visit the site and use Jumia25, Jumia40 or Jumia60).
Also, Jumia is organizing a 1 year party at Django Bar (Rockstone's Office) for all of its stakeholders. This includes the Jumia team, AIG family (Hellofood, Lamudi, Carmudi, Jovago and Kaymu), vendors, media personnel, bloggers and all those who have contributed to the success of the company.
You are all invited! Come join me and my Jumia friends to celebrate and chill out at Django on the 24th of July, from 8pm till Mama calls
For the early birds, there will be lots of food and drinks. For everyone else, you can have the chance to win fantastic prizes such as power banks, phones, etc in a contest
When asked to reflect on how far the company has come, one of the original team members, Papa Sika Andoh said “Joining the Jumia team was an exciting journey for some of us. Looking back at what we have built within 12 months, l can say that even the sky is not a limit anymore”.
