THE SLIMTRADER MISSION
SlimTrader owns and operates MoBiashara: The first platform in Africa that allows consumers to purchase services or shop for goods with their mobile devices. This is especially valuable given the slow and erratic internet access on the continent, which leaves residents with the sole option of traveling and waiting in line to conduct potentially simple transactions.
SlimTrader, an e-commerce firm, seeks to relieve the burdens associated with everyday transactions in developing countries by providing the missing link to completing these important activities: easy and affordable access.
Through MoBiashara, SlimTrader helps to widen markets, reduce transaction costs, and facilitate the exchange of goods and services. It’s about getting people what they need, regardless of where they are. Now.
Physical travel, postal service, long waits, and other hardships associated with completing life’s necessary tasks, from filling prescription to buying bus tickets, are all eliminated. All users need is a mobile phone—and a purpose.
