Afrimalin

Afrimalin is an online classified portal already operating in eight countries of Francophone Africa: Benin, Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Ivory Coast, Mali, Guinea, Democratic Republic of Congo and Senegal. Our ambition is to become the leader in its class across francophone Africa. A new African e-commerce agent, Afrimalin offers a free solution to connect sellers directly to local buyers. As the first digital gateway for many sellers, the site represents an acceleration lever for SMEs, traders and local craftsmen looking for a new distribution channel that is simple and fast. Afrimalin was designed and is led by a team of African e-commerce experts. The management team is 100% African and composed of talent from the continent’s digital scene who are based in Guinea, Senegal, Ivory Coast, Benin, Mali and Cameroon.

The economic model relies on primarily on advertising and on a freemium model. We offer paid services to users who want to gain more visibility and promote their products. These services are VIP and banner ads. The site will get between 5 to 15 per cent commissions in certain transactions with the launch of the hybrid model online classified/marketplace in July 2017. Afrimalin is currently investing in Sama taxi in Senegal (a sort of Uber) and will launch afrimalin food in June.
