BaadiGoob provides two major solutions in Somalia:
1. Procurement and Logistics (Supply Chain)
2. eCommerce including ordering on our catalogue, Rentals, Freelance Employment, Event Hosting and Management (BaadiGoob Online)
BaadiGoob is a digital
commercial platform which creates a profitable market for local small scale
and medium-size entrepreneurs selling products grown or made locally. Running a
small and medium-range businesses in Somalia involves confronting many
obstacles, especially for marginalised communities and women entrepreneurs. For
instance, businesses trading in locally grown/made products such as honey,
cultural artefacts, fruits and vegetables and seafood, and other locally
produced goods lack start up financial resources, market research data and
information and cash flow investments. Creating a special local market is
essential for the growth of the country’s economy and improving living
standards of the local population. BaadiGoob, therefore responds to that unique
need and aims to close the opportunity gap for women entrepreneurs and members
of disenfranchised communities to get access to these competitive markets.
BaadiGoob has also established freelancing job opportunities for many job-seekers and employers with job vacancies in the country. In fact, Somalia is rated at the bottom of the Human Development Index (HDI) on both literacy and employment for youth when compared to youth around the world. There are many highly skilled and qualified youths currently enrolled in different vocational training skills and trade schools in Somalia. The graduates of these programmes often lack career planning and job placement opportunities.
A large number of youths trained by Hano Academy for example, develop the skills and knowledge necessary to serve in different sectors of the country’s economy. On the other hand, there are clients, i.e., business owners and managers, looking for skilled manpower to perform different technical jobs on a short-term basis (freelancing). Our e-Platform links up such employers with skilled employees to perform these short-term assignments on a freelance basis. By freelance, we mean the client only pays for the work done and can decide whether to continue the service or completely stop engagement with the employee based on the employer’s needs. For long term employment, our sister company ‘Khibrad Recruitment Agency’ is there to help with sourcing a quality labour force by conducting thorough background checks for job-seekers thereby ensuring clients recruit reliable and qualified candidates.
Our eCommerce portal
provides a conducive process through which people can buy and sell products
online. We verify the availability of the products and conduct background
checks for business executives selling through our platform to avoid fraud. We
also have a dedicated communication line for our clients for urgent and
emergency reasons. You can also order most of our products on our catalogue. BaadiGoob
also specialises in supply chain management services, including strategy
implementation, procurement and logistics. There are also other services, which
BaadiGoob also offers other services, including rentals and event
