"MallforAfrica has made it so easy for me to purchase what I want from the US. It has been an amazing experience I have never had to be able to buy items online from US and UK sites online and get them in Nigeria," said P. Ajayi, a shopper from Nigeria.
MallforAfrica is set to open up in Ghana and Kenya by the end of the month.
