Kigali Farmers´ And Artisans´ Market
Who We Are & What We Do
Started in June 2017, Kigalifaam is an Impact Entrepreneurship offering flexible and scalable business solutions to MSMEs, home industries, and the community in Rwanda, as well as other African countries. Our mission is to create a community that champions #buylocalsupportlocal and #buyafricanbyafricans while having the least impact on the environment possible.
We provide a welcoming and inclusive environment for all MSMEs regardless of age, color, disability, gender, gender expression, gender identity, genetic information, national origin, race, religion, sex and sexual orientation. With more than 200 MSMEs that we connect with, over 80% are women, youth and PLWD
Our platforms include:
- Online Multivendor Marketplace
- Physical Markets
- PIMA Zero-Waste Store & Flea Markets
Powered by and in partnership with Hepta Analytics, our virtually assisted multivendor marketplace is a lightweight, highly responsive & mobile friendly solution made for Africa by Africans. This affordable and scalable solution means that #madeinrwanda and #madeinafrica businesses can now open, control, promote, and run their own online stores at a low cost.
We offer quality service with convenient payment & next-day delivery options. The true effortless shopping experience begins through Kigalifaam´s new online marketplace.
Our markets give #madeinrwanda and #madeinafrica MSMEs a platform to promote their work through our bi-monthly farmers´ markets. As a consumer, you get the chance to meet and interact with MSMEs to learn, support, and understand their business. Our markets are held on the 1st and 3rd sat of each month in Kigali at our zero-waste shop on 18 KG 599, Rugando
PIMA Zero Waste Shop
We strive to create a circular economy by practicing RRR through our PIMA zero-waste shop & flea markets. We have collection points in Kigali and Musanze for glass/plastic jars & bottles, paper of all kinds, tin & clothes for children in need which in turn we give to our MSME up-cycling partners who use them in their production cycle. We also encourage consumers to visit our store with their own containers and reusable bags to buy products according to their budget.
Our flea markets give an opportunity for anyone in the community to sell, swap, or give away used items. They happen at the same time as our physical markets
We are on 18 KG 599, Rugando, Kigali. We do deliveries from 0800 – 1530hrs, Mon – Sat. To visit our online shop, click here
