No Middleman / Mobile Application

In the world where the rich get richer and the poor remain poorer, an innovative Xchange App is proposed to reduce the gap of inequality between the two to fight poverty. It connects the producers and final consumers within a walking distance of 5km radius with smartphone and Internet to cover a large percentage of rural peasants.

The app is based on double coincidence barter trading to replace middlemen with unfair exploitation of producers especially in the agricultural sectors. It allows people with excess of stuffs (from the rich) to exchange with another products (from the poor) eventually reduce wastage and widen opportunities.
