Ajuma’s will app will allow users to track their income and expenses, get business feedback, make invoices, accept payments, and spend their money on virtual debit cards.

FREMONT, CA: Ajuma Technology announced plans to begin in early 2021. A Ghanaian and American tech startup, Ajuma Technology is reinventing the way West Africans work by placing small enterprises and self-employed employees at the forefront of their experience. Ajuma’s smartphone app is a tool that incorporates a service marketplace and a business management/booking platform into a single app. It was designed primarily with West Africa's many small businesses and freelancers in mind.

The interface is similar to the QuickBooks and TaskRabbit hybrid. If anyone requires a service, they may build a post on the marketplace of Ajuma. Local companies in that group are told and can bid on the work. When a customer gets an offer, they will review the supplier's profile and approve whatever quotation they want. A contract shall be formed, and Ajuma shall make payment before all parties conclude that the work is complete. Upon done, the service provider would have access to their funds through Ajuma Mobile Wallet or Mobile Money.

The app will allow users to track their income and expenses, get business feedback, make invoices, accept payments, and spend their money on virtual debit cards. "West Africa has about 80 percent self-employment and very mobile-focused economies. There's no doubt that West Africa is primed for a change in the way people operate," said Daniel Heinen, Co-founder, Ajuma Technologies.

The company has bigger plans than just a mobile app. "This company is geared towards making a difference in the lives of people of colour. When it comes to Africa, the continent has been disenfranchised for far too long," said Sydney Vandyck, Co-founder, Ajuma Technologies.
