Using SMS to improve food security in slums - Soko Text

Michael Riggs's picture

The team at Soko Text is developing a SMS-based tool that brings the source of food (farmers) closer to consumers in slum areas.

Soko Text plans to make transformational changes in food supply chains, by reducing the number of steps - and therefore costs - of moving food from the farm to the consumer.

Designed as a micro-enterprise, Soko Text seeks to empower local people and businesses, as well as address food security issues.
