A turkish village with Facebook page and selling cherries online

Posted in ICTs for Development by DS on July 11, 2009

Boyali is a small poor village in the city of Amasya in Turkey. Its destiny has changed 4 years ago when the residents started producing cherry and selling it online.  They now have an online portal, facebook page and they use the technology for price discovery as well as for finding new clients for their produce.
