BENIN

A tripartite partnership with IFDC - providing market information systems and smart apps for the education of actors on best practices. The Ministry of Agriculture is using the MIS tool as its key platform for market information dissemination

Farmerline developed a Market Information System (MIS) and Learning, Training and Knowledge Information System (SIFT) for the "Communal Approach for the Agricultural Market in Benin - Phase II" (ACMA II), funded by the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in Benin.

 

The MIS platform disseminates market price information to actors/subscribers through voice (in 7 local languages) and SMS, allowing near-real-time communication in groups, and facilitating the marketing and sale of products.

 

Currently, there are over 11,000 subscriptions receiving weekly voice call with market prices.
