Dear All,

The ITC (www.intracen.org), has recently been given the responsibility
of an interesting project aiming at bringing IT-based assistance to
Liberia "market women". The ITC is already in working in Liberia,
especially with bird-eye chili pepper farmers and extension workers, and
is now asked to use IT solutions to help market women, a key segment of
the Liberian economy. Mobiles can be a useful tool and ITC will soon
verify how, in a mission planned for the first week of November.

For now, the idea is to set up a pilot mobile business-matching module,
enabling to exchange info about what is offered by farmers/traders
inside the country and what buyers look for (essentially buyers based in
Monrovia, where the demand is stronger).

The ITC is looking for the assistance of an international consultant.
The job description for it is attached. If you know of anyone who may be
interested, please inform me ( dard "at" intracen.org )

You can also check some info on ITC and mobile-business:

Thanks a lot,
Kind regards,

Raphaël Dard
