THE oneline commercial platform Ajemart is aimed at boosting Small and Medium Scale Enterprises (SMEs) in Osun State, its Project Manager Clement Adebayo, has said.
In a message on the platform’s first anniversary, he said: “One of the key benefits of the initiative is to create and raise employment by assisting local producers and sellers from Osun to increase the demand for their products through adequate market visibility which we believe will lead to the economic growth of the state.
“In over one year, the programme has enumerated over 6,000 producers. They have been trained on marketing, sales fulfilment, customer service and provided relevant information about entrepreneurship. There are over 2,000 producers who have listed their products and services on the platform directly without the middleman.’’
