Created by Fadima Diawara, Kunfabo is a Guinean manufacturer of low-cost smartphones. It signed an agreement with a consignment store with the mobile operator MTN Guinea to ensure the distribution of its products locally.
The agreement relates to the Kunfabo F99 model which was subjected to serious tests before taking the decision of the telecom operator. Kunfabo smartphones should have an Android 8.1 operating system, 4G connectivity and a 5.72-inch screen. They should also be filled with African applications of all kinds (social networks, geolocation, cooking).
Fadima Diawara’s ambition is to make a profit of 300,000 euros from the first year of marketing. Its low-cost positioning puts it directly in competition with international brands like Tecno, to which it wishes to outstrip the pawn.
The young entrepreneur also plans to have her own manufacturing plant, so as to no longer depend on China and better serve Africa.
