Nairobi – Freelance service providers in Kenya and East Africa as a whole can now earn direct from their services using a new online platform connecting companies with service providers, www.itsmyhustle.com
The website, which aims to reduce unemployment in Kenya and the region, among other things, is owned and managed by
Andrew Teyie, Managing Partner of ACL, said in a statement that the marketplace of service providers also aims to provide customers and service providers with an optimized and convenient way of doing business.
âYou don’t need an office, this is your office. It is the largest marketplace for service providers in East Africa. It offers customers and service providers a streamlined and convenient way of doing business on their own destiny, “he said in a statement.
The platform has 25 job categories, including speakers, make-up artists, hairstylists, social media influencers, videographers, photographers, MCs, massage therapists, painters, models, interior designers and others.
âCompanies or service providers can use the huge East African markets of Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, Rwanda, Burundi and South Sudan for talent and services. You need to register for free to access this potential, âadded Teyie.
The platform, which was launched two weeks ago, ensures that the more than 50 million unemployed skilled workers in East Africa can come into contact with companies across the region and create wealth.
âI am sure that this also poses a challenge to the protocols of the Common Market of the East African Community to ensure that East Africans can use companies and service providers and that there can be free movement of people and workers. That’s why our vision is a limitless âEast Africa,â added Teyie.
Hezekiah Orenyo, a designer who uses the platform frequently, noted its efficiency, which enabled him to run his business during the COVID-19 period.
âIt was particularly useful to me and my family during this time of COVID 19. I work remotely and am assured of my payment as the customer pays in advance if we agree on the terms, âsaid Hezekiah.
