Start-up SA SweepSouth to expand further across Africa
Startup in South Africa South sweep announced plans to expand further across Africa. The startup was founded in 2014 by Aisha Pandor and Alen Ribic (a couple) as an online platform where customers can order from home service providers. In just seven years, the company has grown from a start-up to South Africa’s largest on-demand household cleaning service provider.
SweepSouth expanded to Kenya in 2020 and began operations in Nigeria this month – and plans to further expand its presence across Africa. According to an IOL item, the expansion comes at an interesting time as customers are emerging from harsh containments into spring cleaning mode. Bookings in South Africa have returned to pre-pandemic levels, recording a 200% increase in activity.
To close the market gap, the couple will develop an online platform while taking the strain out of the connection process by reducing friction points. Customers have a choice of trusted, pre-approved home service providers, and all payments are made on the platform. Early 2021, SweepSouth published the annual report on the remuneration and working conditions of domestic workers in Africa, in particular in Kenya and Nigeria. The report’s findings were consistent with their new launch and underscored the extent of Nigerian domestic workers caught by Covid-19.
