Zindzi commented on Neighbour, Neighbour

Hi Colleen,

Great question! Users earn money when they complete a request to drop-off or collect goods, such as groceries or documents. These requests (and thus, payments) would be made by those who are less willing to do the same. I've identified specific segments of the population that have the assets and risk profile to play this role.

Is your primary interest in finding ways to encourage people to accompany refugee women and girls? Or are you also trying to figure out a financially sustainable model for the program? If it's the latter, it may be helpful to map out how your project connects to different stakeholders and identify common needs. If it's the former, there may be non-financial ways to do so.

Feel free to let me know if you'd like to chat about it. You're filling a really important gap for vulnerable women!

Best,
Zindzi

This is a really great idea. It may also be beneficial to consider how you can incorporate the use of warehouse receipts in order to help farmers gain access to financing if they can maintain their harvests (i.e., collateral)! Good luck!
