In rural areas, there are several sanitation service providers (installers, material providers). How can 50 households in the locality obtain aggregated information on offers or deals from these service providers through their mobile phones - and through access to information on such deals, consequently have a greater incentive to use sanitation services. End user is in rural areas, high illiteracy.
Problem from Craig Kullmann, email@example.com
As listed above there are several countries that could potentially use this type of application to help link consumers to service providers and simultaniously incentivize service providers to go to hard to reach areas by aggregating households.
This would ideally increase access to information at the household level on how to identify service providers, and from a service provider perspective is to gain efficiencies in delivering their services by bundling households.
