One Shop Build Africa (2)

Our Story

When the founders of AfroConstruct started to think about building houses in their respective home countries, they were discouraged by the many rip-off stories they had heard within the African immigrant community. Family, friends, contractors and many more had taken monies for projects that were never started or abandoned in the process. To solve this problem, they reasoned that there should be a medium to connect future homeowners directly to manufacturers and suppliers of building and home remodeling materials. AfroConstruct is the medium thus created to serve this purpose; an online marketplace where African immigrants with building projects in their respective countries can access and buy building materials directly from reliable manufacturers and local suppliers.

Mission

To simplify the process of building your dream house in Africa by connecting you directly with top suppliers of building and home remodeling materials, eliminating a middleman who could squander your money.

Vision

Our platform will pilot in Ghana and Nigeria. We intend to spread to other parts of sub-saharan Africa and throughout the continent. Our target customers are African immigrants in the United States and Canada to start with and eventually those from elsewhere abroad (Europe & Asia). We plan on making professionals such as building contractors, foremen, masons, plumbers and painters available for hire by our customers and future homeowners.
