OuiCarry provides delivery services and allows its customers (individuals and businesses) based in Senegal to buy products from international commercial websites.

The clients can choose from any commercial website, which gives them access to very wide range of products. For those without credit card, OuiCarry can buy the product online on behalf on the client. OuiCarry currently counts several thousand customers and has made good progress over the last few years.  

Compared to other alternatives, OuiCarry brings high-quality services at moderate cost and within a relatively short period of time (less than 10 days for an expedition coming from Europe for example)

The company was rewarded in 2016 by the Orange FAB prize and has also been the finalist of the “Great Entrepreneur Competition” held by the British Council.
