A Ghanaian entrepreneur by name David Marfo has launched what is considered the first-ever online cosmetic shop.

Mr Marfo has also swept four awards at the Avon Presidential Recognition Program in the United States.

According to a report by Peacefmonline, the entrepreneur was motivated by the view that cosmetics should not always be purchased physically to set up the online shop.

David's opinion was that people should no more have to drive long distances to stores just to purchase cosmetics.

Instead, David thinks that customers should be able to buy cosmetics from the comfort of their homes or offices.

According to him, he decided to go into cosmetics with technological leverage because he believed that customers were expecting more from the cosmetic industry.

In addition to being able to place orders online, customers also have the chance to pay for their goods right from their mobile money wallets.
