Explain your idea in details:
Our main objective is to provide employment to the locals along with promoting the local products of Nepal. Nepal is highly riched in culture, tradtion and food. The unique taste carrying its own historical importance is something that needs to be preserved and tasted. Moreover, unemployment is at the peak compelling around 3.5 million people (total 14% population of Nepal) to work aborad. Hence, our application provides the virtual market for sellers and customers for trading the local products. People can easily convert their passion as a source of income (part/ full time depending on need). Firstly, sellers can easily create and register their profile on our application and select the food items they want to sell today. According to the items selected and quanitity, our appplication will show the list of all near-by sellers to customers with label of food item, quantity and price ensuring the accessibility of quality home-made foods with unique local test to the customers. Although our application starts with food section, we plan to broaden the segment with other local products as per need.
Expected impact of your idea on sustainable development
1. No poverty: As the main aim of our idea is to create employment and provide job opportunities, it also aims for eradication of poverty along with no hunger. 2. Good health and well-being: We aim to foster the sales of hygienic and home-made products to replace the fast and junk food ensuring sound health. 3. Gender equalities: In the context of rural areas of Nepal, men are often engaged in income-generating activities meanwhile women are compelled to do housework chores. But, our app provides ample opportunities to marginalized women to earn their livelihood independently. 4. Partnership: We aim in future for international cooperation to sustain our eco-system in foreign countries. 5. Economic growth: If ample of employment opportunities are provided, the rate of brain-drain declines enhancing the economic status of a nation as a whole.
Plans for implementation and sustainability
Our business model includes customer segments, channels, value proposition and revenue stream. People who love cooking and want to earn income from their passion will be the target customer as sellers meanwhile people who prefer to taste hygienic and unqiue taste will be taget customer as buyers. Our channel includes website and application. To determine the value of our service, we surveyed about more than 5+ different districts out of which around 89% people liked and intended to create their profile. Social media and influencer will be our marketing strategies. And our revenue comes from two source: First through commission of sales and next through advertisement of products. But our revenue will be invested on marketing at our initial stage.
