Growth of African rural e-commerce

Business opportunities have been created due to the rise and growth of e-commerce in the world and primarily in Africa.  This is attributed to the increased Internet connectivity reaching even the previously inaccessible remote villages across Africa and connecting them with and enabling e-commerce. Online retailers can now reach customers in remote areas, while locals have access to a variety of products from major urban cities.
 
While over 50% of the world is now connected to the Internet, only 36% of the African population is, and even more poorly served are rural areas. This penetration rate is, however, increasing across Africa, and together with that of the mobile (now at about 80%), represent a potentially major growth lever as well as a significant growth opportunity for e-commerce to serve this otherwise underserved demographic.
