Our goal is to leverage the power of technology to empower suppliers with tools to reach a large, unlimited audience of potential customers as well as help buyers find products and suppliers quickly and efficiently.

I strongly believe that the liberation of mankind from the limitation of time and space is one of the most subtle yet profound developments of the human experience in the Twenty First Century. Doing business at what Bill Gates once described as the ‘speed of thought’ has unleashed a dynamic explosion of value that spreads concentrically across the globe, but has yet to make full impact on the African continent.
aniwura.com is designed to move the African market space forward by providing rural and urban micro, small, and medium-scale (MSMEs) entrepreneurs the opportunity to engage in business on a global platform at costs that make their products and services attractive and sustainable. The portal also gives them access to previously inaccessible markets; current trading and product information critical to constructive decision-making. At aniwura.com, we provide multidimensional business information and trading services such as Business-to-Business (B2B), Government-to-Business (G2B), and Online-to-Offline (O2O) models on a single platform.
For Africa to ramp up development in a short space of time, it must come to terms with the need to use digital technology, particularly Information and Communication technology such as aniwura.com, to improve the commercial and personal living standards of its people. At the heart of the continents growth objectives must be an inclusive agenda of enhancing economic wellbeing across social strata.
The Maasai cattle traders of Tanzania, for example, should be able tap his or her phone to send images of available cattle stock and post reserve prices for each cow or herd, so does the cocoa farmer from Nigeria. A commercial bid could take place and he/she sells to the most favourable bidder while physical possession/transfer is arranged.
The open price discovery process allows the herdsman or farmer obtain ‘fair value’ for the product (cow or cows) while the buyer equally pays a ‘fair price’. Other more technical market arrangements such as forward sales and purchases could be arranged. The point basically being that the digital age preps economies to provide greater welfare for their citizens through the promotion of value exchange within a competitive and cost effective framework.
We are focused on delivering a technology and business transformation platform to enable adoption of end-to-end online sourcing and trade activities on a single platform for merchants and consumers across Africa beginning with the continent’s largest market-Nigeria with over 172 million population.
The process will involve delivery fulfillments at the specified speed across the entire country. This has remained a monumental challenge for the budding e-commerce industry in Nigeria. According to available statistics, less than half the parcels dispatched in Nigeria by e-retailers are delivered between three days-seven days due to logistics and infrastructural challenges.
As we move forward in the coming years, I have the believe that with government intervention, e-commerce operators in Nigeria will be able to focus on investing in the logistics infrastructure in response to growing demand for quality delivery services in Nigeria. This will involve the deployment of sophisticated planning and execution systems all over the country.
Aniwura has a long term plan of joining or initiating a consortium with plans to invest millions of dollars over the next five to eight years to develop and manage the Nigerian logistics network to help deliver online shopping in all cities across Nigeria within 24 hours.
We at aniwura.com embrace this liberation to excel with uncommon passion. We see balls of prosperity racing across the African continent as more governments, businesses and individuals migrate to internet-based exchange of values worth billions of dollars annually.
This, as far as we are concerned, is the dawn of a new age of unrelenting prosperity fostered by the daring-do of digital entrepreneurs. As the freshness of the new world order evolves in months ahead we hope to see all our customers, patrons and partners enjoy the benefits of creativity, technology and growth that aniwura.com can bring.
