Abalobi

Abalobi is a Smartphone application that allows small-scale fishers to significantly strengthen their position in the value chain and to improve the living conditions of their families. Among other things, a direct sale to restaurants, hotels, etc. is possible via the function “Marketplace”. Other elements include weather warnings, a platform for communication and information sharing among the fishermen, a more precise collection of catch data and the detailed logging of revenue and expenditure as well as the management of activities in the framework of a cooperative. The Happel Foundation supports the further development of the application, the further dissemination of it amongst small-scale fishers in South Africa, as well as the introduction of Abalobi in the Seychelles.
