Market information test starts in Burkina Faso

The Burkinabe farming organisation Aprossa-Afrique Verte is testing a platform in various parts of the country that will give farmers access to vital market information via mobile phones and computers. After a thorough testing phase, the farmer system will launch in April 2013. This system is a result of the work of Dutch ICT for development organisation IICD, development organisation ICCO via the Connect4Change consortium together with local software development company BAMIG and Text To Change.
