Food for everyone! / Published May 7, 2018 by Ginneth Zubieta

Food for everyone!

Did you know that about 870 million of people suffer each day from hunger? Worrying, isn't it? By 2050 the population be greater than today and the world's resources are running out, so we (team) ask ourselves what can we do?
In the way of proposing a solution we had a laugh moments, surprises and memoral moments. The most surprising moment was when we investigated about food and his scarcity, because we open our eyes to the reality of today, and about how our actions could influence present and of course the future. When we share and show our sketches, we laught a lot of, remember not anyone draw nice in a short time, anyways...this exercise helped us to define the principal causes of hungry and to propuse a possible solution to feed 7 billion of person today, and 9 billion in 2050, and that's was our most memoral moment, we started to come up with our idea.

Although our idea does not solve the hunger problem of present and future generations, per se, we believe that a set of "small" actions aimed towards the same end can achieve great changes, so we want to create a tool for help colombian farmers to optimize resources (nature and economic) and accompain them throught all productive process (from planting to comercialization).

What do you think about it?

Agrapp an idea that take form. / Published May 7, 2018 by David Ricardo Duarte Castillo

Agrapp an idea that take form.

Together with my friends, we achieve a good idea, and to reach solve the problem of the lack of initial source for the little and medianum producer.

We want to give the oportunity to the people to be part of the agro projects, and the best way that we found was with the crowdfounding.

Now we have to figure out the problem of the deelop the platform and the app in order to get a practical solution of our initial problem, the crowdfounding is the solution.

But we want to help the producer, but no only with the money, also with advices and to be present in the all process. Improving each agro project that we get.

Todos estamos conectados con la agricultura

En un principio nos planteamos viajar a diferentes zonas rurales, para conocer a diferentes productores agrícolas, escuchar de sus experiencia y vida diaria para poder analizar como poder ayudarles.
Mientras avanzamos en el proyecto y la idea se iba moldeando, naturalmente, debido al trabajo en equipo, al contacto con la gente a cada reunión para desarrollar los desafíos del reto. Cada uno de nosotros comenzó a contar la historia de agrapp.co y para nuestra sorpresa, amigos cercanos del trabajo, la universidad o personas que conocimos simplemente para contarles la historia tenían un abuelo, un tío, sus padres relacionado con proyectos agropecuarios.
Nos encomendamos a la tarea de contar la historia de agrapp a la mayor cantidad de personas, con el objetivo de contactar a los productores a una llamada de distancia y ser presentados por personas de confianza de ellos con las que realizamos un vinculo previo.
Gracias a esto hemos podido agregar proyectos a la plataforma y estar en contacto con productores de una manera más cercana y rápida.
