Jumia, Nigeria’s leading online shopping destination has empowered resident women in Lagos to deepen e-commerce penetration in the country. This is through the company’s Women & Youth Empowerment Programme, created to provide training and support to young women and youth seeking to expand their sources of income.

The programme, which is also aimed at ultimately bridging the widening unemployment gap among the youth in the country, had its pilot phase launched on  Friday 14th June 2019, at the Jumia Experience Centre in Yaba, Lagos.
