Just because sitting around and thinking isn’t just enough, we decided to take baby-steps; one at a time.

If you live in Nigeria, you must have come to terms with the challenges faced by business owners; poor supply of electricity, absence of capital, and inadequate infrastructure are some of the numerous threats to the survival of businesses.

The issues mentioned above are a lot to battle with. Business owners don’t want to add tedious administrative tasks, inventory hassles, settlement palaver or payment-related issues to the litany of already existing challenges.

Just because we care, we have been thinking of ways to help improve the fortunes of retailers and business owners. Just because sitting around and thinking isn’t just enough, we decided to take baby-steps; one at a time.

What have we done?
