- Afoup -
Afoup is a startup creation project led by young Cameroonians concerned about the future of farming in Africa. The concept is quite simple, we plan to create an agriculture nrtwork that will put together seller and buyer. But this will several scale and will concern both agriculture and food processing. Simply our project is based on the exploitation of a web platform to allow agricoltors to interact with others actors of the chain and so allow citizens of the world through the World Wide Web to discover and acquire the gems from the Cameroonian agriculture (white pepper of Penja, Bobolo mintoumba etc. ..), on the other hand we intend to direct producers towards buyers and conversely. Moreover the only real requirement to use Afoup is owning a cell phone (any brand).
Afoup it is:
- A market
- An agricultural network
- Domestic ads
- The weather
- Multi media content
- A profession directory
It will be possible for an agricultural entrepreneur to better present its activities and optimize the search for partners and customer potential in the platform. Furthermore the integration of social networks buttons will contribute to enhance the visibility of the producer beyond the platform. The mobile integration will allow any user to update its stocks on is mobile and receive alerts and commands on mobile.
Registration for the Afoup platform will be free, and the first months of tests offered, however after that period, a minimum amount of 4€ 70 (3000 FCFA) to be paid monthly to guarantee service quality to our customers. However some services and under certain conditions can be offered. The project also has a social mission that is why we develop a cost structure even has to involve different strata of Cameroon's agricultural economy.
Our project aims to get the producers of anonymity and put them in the center of our network by bringing the producer to the end consumer and democratizing the supply network. The promoters know all the difficulties faced by rural stakeholders in Cameroon, and this project will try to provide innovative solutions. The impact of the project on the lives of farmers and others in the agricultural chain This project will change many Cameroonian life when, we know that 70% of the population lives from agriculture and that around less than 40% derives an acceptable income. The major concern in agriculture in Cameroon is related to product distribution circuit, in fact production is significant but the lack of means of communication prevente the delivery of product.
To overcome, our approach will be follows: - Referencing farmers and other actors in the chain of production area - Offer them an exhibition space and sale of their crops and products -To Facilitate the partnership Upstream-Downstream and Downstream-Upstream -Propose Trainings and seminars on marketing, sales and agricultural technology etc ...
