GFA Attract – Episode 2: Impactful Trade… Supply-Chain…Manufacturer Centric

GFA Attract is an interview series conducted by GetFundedAfrica, where we talk to investors and business leaders about ‘every and anything’.

The African business environment, in different areas can be quite fragmented. Around the world, the importance of building Ecosystems – connecting and operating A,B & C stakeholder or process has emerged as a significant platform through which enhanced output & delivery of products and services can get into the hands of end-users.

The name of this weekend’s profiled company – “Bahranda” is a Tiv acronym for “Intermediary” and was used to refer to the Hausa traders who passed through the kingdom, to purchase harvested Agricultural products from native farmers for sale in the northern parts of West Africa.

Promoted by our latest GFA Attract Guest – Mr Lenin Ugoji, Bahranda is determined to create “impactful trade made simple”, by technologically operating a platform which acts as an intermediary dedicated to solving the perennial problem of “access to quality raw materials by the manufacturing sector”.
