Who are we?
In 2020, few young ladies that studied marketing and IT overseas at a Master’s degree level were having coffee in Addis chatting about their shopping experience in other countries on Amazon, Alibaba and Ebay. Suddenly the conversation turned to “Why can’t we have an e-commerce company like those here in Ethiopia?” We sure are educated and qualified. Plus the growing middle class in Ethiopia and overall E. Africa, the growing economies and population, the integration and many more factors can warrant success of a properly managed company.
A name that is descriptive and easy for the mouth “tolo” was chosen. Then coined with the word that signifies shopping “mart” was added thus forming “tolomart”. The next challenge was coming up with the financial capital needed and facing the local bureaucratic challenge. We were fortunate to find capital investors that helped us form the company, rent office, hire staff, buy server space in the US, contract swift payment system (for international payments), design our webpage and apps and many more costs.
We now are a qualified player ready to serve our people.
