Meet Fatoumata Ba the brain behind Jumia

Meet the woman who built her first website at the age of 16 and right now one of the most successful entrepreneurs in the e-commerce industry which happens to be JUMIA and guess what she’s just 30 years old.   She currently has a Masters degree in Managment Strategy, Marketing, Finance, from Toulouse Business School (No wonder Jumia still leads in the e-commerce sphere till date.)

She is the Co-founder and Group Chief Marketing Officer of Jumia Africa. She earned her place to the top when she first launched Jumia Ivory Coast (which she founded), an online retail platform supported by Africa Internet Group which grew from  10 employees in 2013 to more than 300 in 2015 making Jumia Ivory Coast the fastest growing African e-commerce site with more than 500,000 monthly unique visitors buying more than 50,000 products.
