Explain your idea in details:
For almost a decade, the Republic of Congo has turned its economy towards agriculture, fishing and livestock. The fact is that this sector suffers from a problem of communication, visibility, investment and also advice with regard to sustainability. Thus, to solve these problems, our project focuses on the design of an application and a website through which farmers introduce detailed announcements on the products available for acquisition on the one hand and visitors consult and answer ads that match their criteria. The application thus centralizes all food product offers across the national territory and facilitates research for applicants. This application also provides the population with space to invest in an agricultural project to which they will receive dividends according to their investment rate that will be known. This project brings supply and demand closer together. This project has for main objectives Promote agriculture and livestock Fight against poverty Promoting responsible production consumption Our mobile application and website offers two (02) services to users: 1) The first service concerns farmers and enables them to enter detailed announcements on the products available for acquisition on the one hand and visitors consult and respond to ads that are compatible with their criteria on the other hand. 2) The second service concerns the whole population and allows them to invest in agricultural projects published on the website and on the application wherever they are, ie remotely. This project is innovative especially since it allows to know in real time the quantity of agricultural products available in this territory of the region as well as the price trend to choose which relay depots of its region to go to make its reservations. It is also innovative because it allows investment in an agricultural or remote breeding project.
