      Lagos-based startup Sabi has announced it has hit the milestone of over 150,000 small business users on its marketplace platform.

      Developed and operated by Rensource, the company has been discreetly scaling up since mid-2020.

      Since then, business users on the platform have recorded over $1.2 billion worth of sales via MyShop.

      Sabi works with over 10,000 agents across Nigeria that directly engage with businesses. These include businesses in categories such as agriculture, electronics, finance, and fast-moving consumer goods.

      By bringing businesses into a single network, Sabi aims to make it easier to access services that these businesses need to grow.

      Through their individual profiles, businesses have access to essential trading and operational functions. They can use sales and inventory management tools, buy and sell products, access financing, and track their performance.

      The users are also on track to transact over $80 million on Sabi’s B2B marketplace, MerchBuy, during 2021.

      “Sabi is reaching an underserved yet vibrant market segment and is scaling quickly,” co-founder and CEO, Anu Adasolum, said in a statement.

      “The convenience, trust, and quality of our platform have been validated by our merchants and we look forward to onboarding more businesses as we continue to grow.”
