Why Sell into Burkina Faso?

Burkina Faso (formerly Upper Volta), is a landlocked country located in Western Africa. Recurring droughts, lack of water, deforestation and overgrazing are damaging the agriculture that is a key part of Burkina Faso’s economy. While tourism infrastructure is limited, it is considered to be one of the safer and friendlier countries for tourism travel in Africa. In 2017, there were 93.5 mobile subscriptions registered for every 100 people, while a 2016 Pew Research Center report showed that 16% of adults in Burkina Faso owned a smartphone. The country lacks the infrastructure and legal systems to popularize ecommerce. Other obstacles to the development of online commerce are the low rates of internet penetration and the poor quality of internet connection (which is emphasized by the lack of competition in the telecommunications sector).
