Mobile Monday Kampala: The role of mobiles in reaching farmers in the last mile
MoMo Kampala cordially invites you to attend The Role of Mobiles in Reaching out to Farmers in the Last Mile, co-hosted by Grameen Foundation and MTN Uganda Monday 18th July at MTN Nyonyi Gardens.
The event will be in a panel (see speakers panel below) format and will explore several key questions:
To what extent might a group of small scale farmers, using information from their mobile phones to increase their productivity and market access, enjoy higher prices and better terms, indeed greater prosperity?
The dramatic increase in quality and decrease in cost of information collection and distribution associated with mobile data collection has the potential to improve the development and delivery of products and services to the rural BOP. How much could this information impact future development projects and business proposals?
MoMo Kampala will explore these ideas by convening expert speakers on the topic who can generate rich discussion among participants on what constitutes best practice in mAgriculture and to generate new ideas for how mobile technologies can be leveraged to deliver needed products and services to farmers in the village.
