How could this work?
Imagine a network of Infopreneurs.
Eduardo is one of them, an infopreneuer, who visits the grocery stores in his community. One of the store owners, Maria, orders 10 loafs of bread and 5 packs of rice that she needs. Maria sends an sms using her mobile with the details- Store Owner, Bread, 10 loafs, pin code.
Eduardo receives the sms orders from the community stores on daily basis and compiles and order that is sent to the bakery store in the city. Eduardo orders in bulk and gets a better price. The savings are used to pay for the delivery of the goods.
Back at his home, Eduardo opens his laptop and searches for new locations in his community that might join the network; the software is based on a geographic interface using aerial photographs with high resolution. When Eduardo wants to add a shop, he just selects the shop and adds it to the network. This is very useful for remote areas where no street name, no house number is available and the store owner has no bank account.

- More sales

- Better inventory (no goods will be thrown away)
Benefits for the suppliers:
