Songaga uses the internet to improve yields for a variety of commodities. Think of it as a comparison shopping site for the third world. What holds people back in developing countries is lack of market. Let me explain. Let's say you're a farmer in Tanzania. You have half an acre of land, but use only enough to grow food for your family. Why? Because growing any more would be a waste of time and resources -- there are no buyers. Songaga aggregates those buyers for you, so you have an outlet to sell crops (or whatever you can provide). If you're a farmer, to go back to our example, you could easily grow 20 mango trees on your unused land. Songaga will give you a means to cheaply and easily market your extra mangoes for added income, allowing you, in turn, to buy fertilizer or medication or a bicycle -- things you need to bring yourself out of poverty.
