Mkulima young app is very innovative. It encourages the free flow of information regardless of qualification and titles. Members learn more from each other and the use of pictures/short videos facilitates the adoption of technologies. I like the idea where farmers are able to market their produce without anyone charging commission or facilitation fees. The platform has been tested and its demand driven by the users. By its nature of interaction it is easy to get a review of a seller of goods and services. A geographical mapping of most of the users has made it easy to know who is producing what, where and when. I would suggest that the app is improved to generate a summary of hot trending topics, innovations and most traded items. Finally based on the age bracket of the users, the need for support in terms of capital and financial strategy support need to be emphasized. The users have very good ideas but they need finances. Venture capitalism is the way to go. The members can also pool their little resources in form of a Savings and Credit cooperative or producer organization. Keep up the good work.
