Aspiring social entrepreneurs create App to assist rural & urban farmers
A brand-new App called Spes Legacy aims to change the face of farming in both rural and urban area. The App was developed by a group of aspiring social entrepreneurs and founded by Masters student Nokulunga Zondi.
The young entrepreneurs have been developing innovative solutions to address some of the issues that South African smallholder farmers have been dealing with terms of land, infertile soil, and clean drinking water.
Zondi says that they want to facilitate a way for rural and urban farmers to access the market.
The role players that we have on the App are currently farmers, buyers (small buyers and supermarkets), nursery and pesticide vendors and we’ve got Government extension services.Nokulunga Zondi, founder of Spes Legacy
We make the teaching material available online instead of making farmers go to the offices adds Zondi.
The young entrepreneur explains that once farmers have got their produce, they can upload it onto the portal where potential buyers can see what they have.
She adds that buyers can also place their order online and farmers can deliver the produce ordered by buyers.
