Maua Platform Expansion to Vanuatu – Harnessing the potential of eCommerce to enable MSMEs to trade online

About the Project

SkyEye, a company owned and operated by Pacific Islanders, works on the goal of localizing technology for the region. Through its Maua platform the aim is to create an integrated online marketplace which will help MSMEs with easier, low cost and equitable access to markets. The Maua platform (with a strong focus on women led businesses) will help overcome the major hurdles for MSMEs to trade their goods and services online by providing multiple modes of digital payments, an online marketplace available on smart phones, a ready delivery network and the potential to reach the diaspora as a market thereby facilitating the MSME sector to scale and generate more employment.

This project expands the Maua platform from Samoa to Vanuatu
