Agri-Business ventures of Refugees don't have access to market information about where they can sell their produce. And this will be more painful for businesses dealing with highly perishables where goods need to be laid off as soon as possible. The solution is a USSD application linking businesses to customers via mobile. Using the short code *950#, businesses will be able to publish their stock and customers, using the same code, will be able to place demands and pay instantly with no hussle.
What's the business opportunity for host and refugee community
Information on customers and ruling prices enable refugee farmers make planting decisions in line with hosting community's consumer demand, and enhances negotiation power of refugees because they can easily compare prices, thereby increasing profits substantially. This Uber like business model, but of Agricultural produce, where sellers are Refugees and buyers are consumers in host communities will revolutionize the way business is done by replacing inefficient linear models to network models
How has it been implemented and what impact it had
The solution has not yet been used in refugee camps, fortunately though, it has had positive feedback from farmers, traders, investors and policymakers.
