Farmster - never give up!
"I’ve been researching small-scale farming economies for 10 years, first during my PhD and after during postdoctoral research," said Abramson. "I received the real inspiration for Farmster when I was working on a Gates Foundation-funded project in Zimbabwe using a simple mobile phone platform to help small farmers share and receive information. That’s when I saw the potential to create something focused on one of their biggest problems – marketing their produce."
Farmster helps small farmers to connect with buyers, boosting the efficiency of informal agricultural markets with a hybrid internet/SMS-based platform.
