The Canadian High Commission in South Africa has partnered with the Africa Women Innovation and Entrepreneurship Forum (AWIEF) to run an eCommerce Capacity Development Programme for Women Entrepreneurs in South Africa.
Funded by the Canada Fund for Local Initiatives (CFLI), this program will enhance market access for women entrepreneurs through building knowledge, capacity, and skills in digital channels.
Ecommerce is one of the most dynamically growing business sectors in Africa. Retailing online has provided SMEs and the informal sector solutions to keep running and reaching customers during the COVID-19 pandemic lockdowns. A 2019 online retail study found that, in 2018, eCommerce totaled more than R14 billion or 1.4% of total retail sales in South Africa.
40 South African women entrepreneurs will be provided with technical learning, training and mentoring support on how to start, grow, and scale eCommerce businesses.
