February is a special month to Kaymu, a leading online marketplace in Nigeria. It is the month of its birth!
February 2016, Kaymu clocked 3. Instead of throwing a huge party and inviting the big boys in the music industry, Kaymu is celebrating this milestone in a rather unconventional but very significant and well thought-out manner – carrying out initiatives/projects that shows its commitment to the community.
As part of the celebrations, Kaymu showed love to children battling cancer by paying them a visit at LUTH in honour of the International Childhood Cancer Day. The kids were given donations of toys and clothes.
Also, Kaymu revamped its desktop site. The revamped site improves user experience through an incremental increase in the speed of the Page Load Time and also differentiates Kaymu as a social marketplace.
The new desktop site is optimized for buyers and sellers to communicate, keep up with new product releases and exclusive deals, and experience a fusion between a social network and a traditional marketplace.
Kaymu Nigeria’s Managing Director, Sefik Bagdadioglu said, “Since its inception, Kaymu has created so much access and opportunity. For the young emerging entrepreneur, Kaymu has fostered a dream to strive for more, to grow a business, to leverage on the growth in internet penetration. We have influenced the lives of over 50,000 merchants since launching in 2013,”
He added, “In parallel, this has enabled us to create an incomparable amount of choice for our buyers, whether in terms of assortment or price point. Kaymu is truly for everyone and this is why we’re celebrating three years of choice.”
Kaymu merchants also joined in the celebrations. Throughout February, they have offered exclusive deals on historically top-selling products.
To crown the celebrations, which was tagged #3YearsofChoice, Kaymu shared an infographic highlighting the brand’s milestones and some insider facts about the company’s trajectory over the last three years.
