In short
The platform, a brainchild of the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and Jumia Uganda will benefit vendors in Nakasero, Nakawa, Wandegeya, Bugolobi and Kalerwe. They will be given smartphones, airtime and data to implement the model, while working with market agents who validate and ascertain that the goods meet the requisite quality, are hygienic and securely packaged before they are dispatched.
