Tell us two words about the founders and how the idea came to them
AFRIBABA, which is the site of free classifieds throughout Africa, and was born from the initiative of a young African web developer Jacques TEMGO Guiffo who, after several years spent in Europe and having worked in several multinational web companies, decides to contribute in his own way to the development of Africa. Thus, in 2011, he launched AFRIBABA.COM first in his spare time and also to keep his knowledge in certain web programming languages.
Given the meteoric success in several African countries (Cameroon, Senegal, Ivory Coast, South Africa etc…), he decided to make AFRIBABA a 100% free classifieds site everywhere and for everyone in Africa. Regardless of the internet connection, the site is made for African connection speed and thinking of Africans, but respecting international standard development standards.

Your differentiating and disruptive factors from the existing
Of course, there is no shortage of online classifieds sites in Africa! But the free publication and the quality of the ads on them are really lacking. While on www.afribaba.com, they are key words on which the site is built. In other words, on afribaba.com you can view and/or post ads and easily find your buyer or seller without intermediaries, fees or commissions and completely free of charge. AFRIBABA just connects seller and buyer without interfering in their transactions.
Your business model
Afribaba pays for itself with advertising but also billing additional services to professionals and certain individuals.
AFRIBABA is a project that was born to build but not to compete. We are here to show Africans that we can shop and sell in another way or more than we can do the bargains in another way.
Founder Jacques TEMGO’s primary goal has been to make a site that can serve everyone including competitors for a better Africa.
