‘Vir­tual mall’ to open for indige­nous prod­ucts


Auck­land: The world’s first global indige­nous on­line mar­ket­place will be launched later this month, cre­at­ing a space for Maori and Pasi­fika busi­nesses to show­case and sell their prod­ucts on a global scale.

So­cial en­ter­prise 5000 TRIBES saw an op­por­tu­nity to sup­port busi­nesses amidst the coro­n­avirus cri­sis.

Co-founder Moana El­lis said it would be the first plat­form of its kind.

“Our aim is to sup­port indige­nous well­be­ing by en­abling growth and op­por­tu­nity,” she said.

“We have man­aged to pro­vide all of the tools needed in­clud­ing se­cure, on­line pay­ments for busi­nesses to start mak­ing money on­line and all the hard work has been done for them. We’re prob­a­bly not go­ing to make rev­enue.”
