Sustainable online market for farmers SOMF aims to promote local products from Sierra Leone and Tunisia. We will select the three best products from both countries to promote. Our goal is to focus on and work with vulnerable communities and regions that are working on these products to promote and help them to reduce the chain of intermediaries and give them an opportunity to export products directly.
This is done to increase the adaptive capacity of vulnerable farming communities in Tunisia and Sierra Leone to the effects of food security, increase in agricultural production and opportunities to encourage farming and create a market link between inter-country farming.
This action responds to the call for proposals for addressing nutrition challenges, strengthening the adaptive capacity of a community, enhancing productivity and diversifying sources of food through activities focused on developing community based conservation by HIVOS. Markets from the targeted areas will be developed improving the incomes of the targeted communities. The action will result in the recognition of the role played by minor crops in local food systems through an effective marketing system.
We have done different interviews with importers, exporters, shareholders and policy makers to get their opinion and ideas for further support of our project.
