Impact of your enterprise on sustainable development

With over 12,200 companies created in the last 5 years, Burundi is a fast growing market. Unfortunately, the online market is not being exploited. Around 54% of Burundians use mobile phones and 800,000 access internet and the number is still growing. Kukasoko was launched with the aim to bridge the gap between buyers and sellers and expose young small business owners to a larger online market. In a period of 8 months, the website has reached over 18,500 views, published more than 600 products that have a value of more than $1.6 million and have reached more than 500 downloads on google play store. Our Facebook platform has reached more than 5200 followers with more than 280,000 posts reaches. Our pilot launch proved how potentially big the market is.

Sustainability and future plans

We project to implement a storage facility and delivery service which will be one of our main income sources. Our other projected source of income is advertisement. We also plan to launch international delivery services to promote Burundian small businesses by exposing them to international customers that are interested in local products.

I think this idea is very good especially since the country of Burundi is increasingly gaining more access to the internet. However, I am curious on how you plan to incorporate the development goals in your project and also how the companies you are associating in the app will be sustainable as well. I can tell that your project is quite achievable. Best wishes

Hi dear
Wonderful venture! I love it. It is on point, on course. Big ups. Gone are the days of physical markets . Now we should have many of you. My advice is that you should sensitize more small business owners to own accounts on your platform.
What have you done about payment. Do you have any mobile money agency in mind. Are you going to use visa card? You need to have a payment platform that you clients can invest in to avoid fraudulent individuals. I think it is worthwhile to give this information on your profile
