When you are upcountry there are unexpected challenges. In Kanyenja, Airtel, one of the major network operators was down this morning for a couple of hours. Many farmers use their service but fortunately it came back up as Frederic started his training. Its a remote spot but perfect for the Ubia Soko app close by to a major irrigated rice scheme giving farmers new opportunities and solutions to trade and purchase. Some smallholders are wary of risks related to new technology, but luckily today we succeeded in training a new cohort.
