Recently launched Ugandan online retailer Nofeka has promised to offer much better services to rival existing players in the online retail space. And the company hopes to claim a top position in the market by ensuring timely delivery of orders and giving customers the exact products they ordered for with no alterations at all.
Given the ongoing COVID 19 pandemic which has limited people’s movement and access to food markets, produce stores and supermarkets, Kiyega Daniel the retailer’s founder and CEO realised it was the right time to launch his online retailer that does deliveries too so as to ease life for Ugandans mostly those affected by movement restrictions.
The retailer is operating through two mediums an application by the name Nofeka on Google and Apple play store which you can download and use to shop plus it’s website www.nofeka.ug where you can place orders and have them delivered to where you are at a small extra fee.
Payments can be made through MasterCard, PayPal, mobile money and cash on delivery as well for whatever products you may purchase.
Founded by award-winning Entrepreneur Daniel Kiyega also the company’s CEO, he has commendable experience in online retail having been running online music equipment store www.esommusicstore.com for a number of years now.
Nofeka is already averaging 500 visits a day to its website hardly 3 weeks after its launch and it’s Facebook following has already topped 3000 followers signalling better days ahead.
With an offering of a wide range of products ranging from groceries, clothing to electronics, furniture and toiletries among others, the retailer’s founder Kiyega says they are targeting to have at least 10,000 orders a month within one year.
This according to the firm’s projections will grow to 1 million orders a month 5 years down the road as they step out of Uganda into East Africa and Africa at large.
And as the world’s businesses shift to e-commerce something already taking shape in Uganda, Kiyega says he is positioning Nofeka to be one of the first movers in the retail space locally giving more established names like Jumia and Xente a run for their money plus later spreading out to the continent as the retailer finds its footing.
