Tadjiri; a pan-African project on the verge of boosting the African economy via Blockchain

A digital project, ‘Tajiri’, which aims to empower young Africans and small businesses in Africa, was recently launched in Lagos, Nigeria.

The initiative which is driven by the need to help the livelihoods of people, especially young Africans, women and SMEs in Africa, to achieve the capacity with which they can drive the economy, aims to provide strategic solutions to the identified challenges facing Africa.

With a population of around 1.3 billion people, enormous natural resources, vast arable land and a young population, Africa is currently ravaged by unrest, hunger and poverty – fueled by the growing number of unemployed young people, the lack of opportunities and adequate support for businesses and start-ups

In this context, the Tajiri team led by Kabiru Abiola, highlighted five major issues that prevent the majority of African small businesses from becoming financially free: Constraint of cross-border trade, financial exclusion, poor infrastructure and business support, poverty and rising unemployment rate as well as limited global digital economic integration

These problems made necessary the socio-economic empowerment project called “Tajiri”, which in Swahili means wealth, hope or wealth depending on the context in which it is used.

The Tajiri project team is building a “tripod pillar” to tackle the main identified issues in the African economy, as mentioned earlier. One of them is the “Tajiri Financial System (backbone)”, which aims to provide solutions that will facilitate “cross-border trade and exchange of value” as well as financial inclusion.

They are also building the Tajiri Digital Economy Enterprise Lab ‘which aims to facilitate the integration of the digital economy for young entrepreneurs, women and small businesses in Africa. This is a deliberate approach to building an enterprise lab that will develop solutions and platforms; that will allow anyone to monetize their skills, knowledge, experience and passion and help small business owners go digital. Connect them to finance, markets and professional support.

Last but not the least part of the project plan is “The Industrial Town of Tajiri”, which aims to tackle infrastructure issues, as well as massive unemployment rate using the “grid model”. This means that the Tajiri ecosystem will have mini industrial zones and a network of business clusters for different industrial sectors across Africa, building platforms and foundations that will spur the industrial revolution through Africa. The grid for the industrial zone and business clusters – will welcome and incubate businesses and speed up start-ups.

The Tajiri project is built on blockchain technology because the project team wants it to be a truly decentralized ecosystem, where Africans can do business with each other, have access to and hold a stake, no matter where they are. found on the mainland. It will be powered by a hundred billion units of Tajiri tokens called “TAJIs, created on the” Binance “blockchain network which will be the main medium of exchange in the ecosystem as well as a representation of interest in the project. . Holders of Tajiri tokens will also benefit from the regular issuance of dividends.

The team believe that TAJIRI, being the first of its kind in Africa and even the world, will have mass appeal and a very rapid adoption rate, therefore encourage Africans to quickly take advantage of what the project has to offer, especially now that the project is donating some of their tokens through the Telegram app. All interested participants can take advantage by clicking on the activation link below https://t.me/tajiri_bot
