While we also deploy vehicles/tricycle drivers who collect farm produce and other bulky items from businesses to customers- B2C or B2B and vice versa. Our platform also enable other users to order goods online or offline by using SMS codes then assign our online shopper -aka "Shop4Me" who completes those orders online or physically visit shopping malls and have them delivered by YFEx Courier, users only Pay for whatever they keep. Via cash on delivery, Momo Pay, POS, Gift Cards etc. Our tricycle drivers and motorcycle riders shall also deliver organic farm produce, like fruits and vegetables fresh from the farm to consumers or businesses on agreed schedules.

Expected impact of your idea on sustainable development

Our solution will create jobs for young people and the elderly as well, we intend to provide safety training and other resources to help improve the service delivery and lifestyle of employees. With so many women engaging in local farming, our solution would provide additional training and education to these women on how to handle and package these fragile products to meet exports standards. Making it both viable and sustainable. Targeting the middle and high income earners, corporate communities in Accra and Tema with the 7.5 million people who are mostly online. In the first 6 months of our operation we want to see more and more households subscribe to YFEx FARM BOX, and in one year the YFEx Courier will become a household name, known for reliability and the promotion of healthy eating lifestyle.

In a way, what my colleague's idea is looking for is very similar to mine, only that he does it through a physical system and the interconnection of people. You have a lot of work ahead of you because it is a difficult project, but the benefits can be quite remarkable. Greetings and good luck
