Cristóbal commented on GLUT-STOP- A Market Reorganizer

Wow Jenny Adaobi  this is a huge project!

I was wondering if you had thought about providing direct access of farmers to the platform. I see that in your current IT solution, you need a facilitator linked to every group of farmers because of the lack of internet connection or smartphones. However, having a facilitators adds an extra layer to the deal that might slow it down and create new costs. Would you hire facilitators or would farmers do it?

At Markit Opportunity - Build a Trust Network  we decided to stick to SMS, not only to keep it simple but also make sure that farmers themselves have a key role in the platform and keep the focus of innovation on the process.
