5,000 people a week benefit from the market information voice service in Burkina Faso

Mobile Voice Information is a powerful market extension tool that shows producers need reliable and regular information

The month of April 2019 saw the number of calls / week increase to 5000. This concerns mainly 3 crops (sesame, shea and cashew) with a significant share on the cashew given the very sharp fall in the sector.

This service was developed to protect producers from falling prices in Burkina, in collaboration with Viamo, Orange Burkina and with the support of LWR. The 321 service allows you to receive strategic information to sell at the right time, reduce the risks associated with price falls and get advice on practices and weather. It is available in 3 languages (Mooré, Dioula, Français). The first 4 calls are free.
