This is why Saudat Salami, CEO of Easy Shop Easy Cook, is referred to as the Mother of Nigerian E-commerce
Saudat Salami started her e-commerce business “EasyShop EasyCook, about 11 years ago when there was no one to understudy or model her business after. Today, she is referred to as the mother of Nigerian e-commerce.
Although e-commerce was not popular in Nigeria at the time, Saudat said believe she could pioneer it in the country. “I would go online to the businesses in the UK and the US, I stored them on Google alert and I was always following their story; what they’re doing, how they set up their business, that was what I used to set up mine.”
The certified Microsoft trainer with background in web programming merged her experience with passion to start a company that delivers customized domestic services to the working professional who otherwise cannot meet up due to work and timing challenges.
In her words, “My purpose, is to use my God given talent to provide solutions to problems.” This quintessential woman is proof that you can do whatever you set your mind to do, even if it has not been done before.
