Explain your idea in details:
During this Covid 19 lock down people are working from home therefore getting all services through calls to service providers. I realized it is very difficult to get reliable technicians of simple repairs in our homes like plumber for or kitchen sinks and toilets, mechanics for cars, electric repair, Home hair do and beauty etc. HOSSAPP Application shall solve all this problems using our mobile phones. Competent technicians in the different fields shall upload their details, location and identification. Once the customers have downloaded the app they will select their services, choose a technician near them and make a call. They will even log in the problem so the technician can go prepared to solve it. The app shall be absolutely free however there is a one off charge after services are given. Just like the Uber cabs it shall be very convenient and cheap in the long run.
Expected impact of your idea on sustainable development
HOSSAPP application targets Competent young people who are seeking for jobs and all households in different localities needing their vocational skills services like an electrical fault repair, a leaking pipe repair or a jammed car etc. We shall measure success when we have over 100 competent technicians who have uploaded their details ready to work and the get calls to go and repair at households. Our technicians shall have uniform so that we mitigate against the risk of theft. This idea will eventually impact positively over 100000 households and young people.
Plans for implementation and sustainability
My business model shall include identification of competent artisans in different skills. Training them how to use the application so that they can upload their details and identification. I will then market the app to the community members so that they can use it whenever they have a need. Financing shall be from our savings and donations from local collaborators like Safaricom who we shall identify and involve in the development of the app. We shall also collaborate with technical training institutions and local seasoned artisans.
I am very passionate about ending extreme poverty in our rural communities. During this Covid 19 pandemic its necessary to use digital skills to get our services at hand. Digital skills will form a great part of transforming household economy in this hard times. I believe with good leadership and mentorship households can be financially independent and their economic status will change for the better. I am a visionary leader who creates an organizational blue print for achieving the organizational goals. I see beyond ambiguity and challenges. I embrace change and contrast.. I inspire and empower. I believe in transformation therefore I take initiative to look for solutions as a role model. I believe that if we work together we can eliminate poverty and create jobs.
