Problem or Opportunity
SMEs in Africa gobble with limited resources, as such they find it hard to automate operations due to hefty overhead costs that come with hiring & maintain an onsite tech team to build and maintain tech infrastructures.
Most SMEs find it hard to increase their customer base due to limited capital to invest in tech solutions to expand operations.
