Afrikamart is a Senegalese agritech that facilitates the pick-up, shipping, and trading of fresh fruits and vegetables between small producers and urban retailers via a digital platform.
Afrikamart was founded in 2018 by Mignane and Albert Diouf, a young Senegalese couple, to address agricultural loss issues present throughout the production chain, from producer to retailer.
Partnership with I&P and Teranga Capital
Afrikamart is supported by I&P Acceleration Technologies, a €2.5 million program that aims to finance and support 15 digital start-ups in Sub-Saharan Africa, supported by AFD through the Digital Africa initiative. In Senegal, Teranga Capital is in charge of implementing this program.
This partnership will allow this start-up to :
- increase the development of Afrikamart's business model
- promote job creation
- Expand its network to more than 5,000 operators throughout Senegal by the end of 2022
