The month ‘most hated’ is finally coming to an end, but most of us are not out of the woods yet, am talking about January , with 45 – and not 31 – days, stretching all the way from mid-December to end of January.
While the December holidays are officially a distant memory, It’s been a very long time for those who received an early December paycheck.
While most of us have been precariously juggling our budgets and moving from one financial challenge to the other in January, there are others who are just gliding smoothly through the month.
Am talking about the Jumia JForce team. This team seems to have not been affected by the January cash crunch.
SO, WHAT’S JUMIA JFORCE?
Jumia JForce was established in 2013, and by 2017 the programme attracted about 3,000 agents.
It simply entails one making orders on behalf of clients and later earning their commissions once the items are delivered to customers.
Commissions range from 3 to 10 per cent depending on categories of the products and items sold as well as the quantities moved in the preceding month and can be paid up to Kshs 1 million depending on number of sales made per month.
