Abalobi improves opportunities for small-scale fishermen
Abalobi is a Smartphone application for small-scale fishermen in South Africa. The small-scale fishermen and their families live in great poverty. Using the Abalobi app, they can sell their catch simply and directly to restaurants, hotels, etc. in the region. This considerably increases their sales opportunities in competition with large suppliers and thus provides them with a secure income. As a result, they can significantly improve the living conditions of their families.
