Couple months ago, we started collecting data about market prices in Somalia and have now integrated that information in the app. It is now possible to see an aggregated average price for the animals we currently sell. In the market data section of the app it is also possible to see historical changes of the prices.

Our goal with this data is to give our users transparency about the local market, gain insights so we can become the most efficient player in the market and in the future provide these data to the farmers so they can make better decisions on where and when to sell their animals. To do that, we are planning to create an SMS version of the app that allows the farmers to access the prices in their nearest towns without internet connection.

Please note this data is still small but eventually we hope to be the go to platform for livestock data.
