Farmers consult their mobile phones to access market information

These farmers from Mwenje were exited with mobile phone market application 
These farmers from Mwenje village, Laikipa west are discovering a new way of accessing market prices. 

 They were attending a field day where they learned about Sokopepe and could not resist the urge to try the new technology using their mobile phones.

 The short messages generated indicated that the price of 90Kg of maize in Nairobi was Ksh 3,800, while it is was selling at Ksh 2000 in Sipili. 

That information was more than exiting to the farmers who are now thinking of taking steps to access the Nairobi market and earn and extra Ksh1800.
