Steve McDonald, Founder and President.
Improving lives! I created yaadmarket.com as a tool to improve the lives of our farmers so that they can improve the lives of others. We help farmers in rural areas & developing countries with marketing. Our free websites connect farmers to buyers of agricultural product.
Background – Growing up in a rural community in Jamaica surrounded by farmers, along with my family participating in farming, I experienced first hand what it meant, not to be able to sell your produce or livestock. A few years ago while listening to the radio in Jamaica, I heard a farmer saying that they had watermelon spoiling in the field, while the radio show host was saying that there was shortage in the capital city.
This brought back memories when my family and friends experienced those very same problems. I decided to do something to solve that problem, this gave birth to yaadmarket.com.
yaadmarket.com, is a free to-use online noticeboard (if you will), where buyers can post what they have to sell, and sellers can also post what they want to buy. Both parties can connect with each other and negotiate terms.
Once yaadmarket was up and running, other Caribbean and developing countries asked us to make yaadmarket available to them, which we did. Due to the need for an online connectivity tool like Yaadmarket.com, we decided to make it available to everyone regardless of where they are located. We are currently able to help farmers all over the world market their produce.
We are using technology to eliminate produce spoiling in the field while there is a shortage in marketplace.
Improving lives! We are utilizing technology as a tool for economic and social empowerment.
