NGONG ROAD FURNITURE TRADERS

In Nairobi Kenya there is a long stretch of road called Ngong road. And here you will find the best beautiful furniture production in the world on the road side. These are some of the photos of furniture you will find there.

These traders are road side sellers, meaning they sell their goods at places where other people pass by.

There are several advantages to this, one can easily see the furniture as you drive or walk by hence easily access to the goods.

We also know we can never control nature, weather changes (e.g., storms) can be of great disadvantage to them, fire break-outs such as the one that occurred on Tuesday 29th May, 2018, 8:00 pm, where property worth millions of shillings was lost, and nothing salvaged. Thieves can also be a menace factor.

Currently, the Ngong road is also under-going expansion, which has greatly affected the traders causing them to move further from the road or away to other areas of the city.

In-order to avoid all these problems, the traders can sell their goods online through SOKO JANJA.

WHAT IS SOKO JANJA

Soko Janja is our online retail store. You can find it online through: http://shop.ubrica.com/

This retail store is created to market Kenyan products to the World.  Most products are imported from other countries and given more value over our local products.  Traders  can post pictures of their products on Soko Janja.  We help them market and sell their products once registered on the Soko.

Incentive for Shopping on Soko Janja

We have created a reward system to give incentives for shopping on Soko Janja. Consumers will receive Brevis airdrops from shopping on Soko Janja. Brevis airdrops are monetized loyalty points issuing from the point of sale on Soko Janja. Consumers can in turn use the loyalty points to shop for goods again.

We care about the traders and we wish to help them sell their products while also improving their living standard. That is why we want them also to join Co-operative Society of Ubricans.
