Mauritius and the Mauritian people are amazing and we hope to provide a platform to allow for growth and improved quality of life.
We were inspired to start filao.mu after moving away from home to the United States. After spending a couple years away we realized that there is undeniable creativity and entrepreneurial spirit throughout the Mauritius. However, one major item that holds back innovation is the lack of necessary investment and capital to set up a place to provide services and sell goods.
Additionally we realized that many people are looking for work and many want to start their own online business, have their own website but the lack of resources and a website is not cheap to build and maintain.
Thus, we decided that Mauritius needs to have virtual online platform made by Mauritians for Mauritians to empower both shoppers, craftspeople, businesses and greater employment opportunities for the island.
