Yassir: The Algerian Superapp that is changing how daily services are provided in Africa and beyond
The state of super apps in Africa is rapidly evolving. In recent years, there has been a surge of startups developing super apps that offer a variety of services under one roof.
These super apps appeal to African consumers looking for convenience and affordability.
One such super app is Yassir.
