Low-class Communities Income-generating e-business: Outreach Action-driven e-business for Rural and Art-craft Women Communities

The main objective of this project is to harness ICT as a driver of socio-economic development within low-income communities in Uganda by collaboratively helping to increase the income generation of participating groups of women selling African artifacts and cultural goods around Kampala and organized in cooperative or small or medium enterprises (SMEs), by use of appropriate web technologies. Furthermore, the project allows rural communities to have access to cash money from any mobile telecommunication end-point service providers (TESP) in their immediate reach through the use of mobile airtime voucher-transfer system from their relatives living in the intensive economic activity areas like Kampala.
