Market Women in Uganda
Women market vendors in Uganda are using the Market Garden app to safely sell and deliver fruits and vegetables to customers during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Launched in 2018 by the Institute for Social Transformation (IST), with funding from UN Women Uganda, the app lets women sell their goods from their homes through the app. Then motorcycle taxis deliver the goods to customers. Sellers are paid through the platform, which limits the risk of the virus transmitting through the exchange of cash.
