GP takes step to digitise mango business

Grameenphone has taken an initiative to empower the mango farmers of northern zone in many ways, enabling them to sell mangoes using f-commerce and optimum digital integration.

Grameenphone has organised an f-commerce event for the Kansat Aam Aroddar Shomobay Shomiti at Shibganj in Chapainawabganj recently.

Over the past few years, mango businesses for farmers in the north have been thriving over the digital sphere.

To help the community of mango farmers and businessmen reach greater heights, Grameenphone is empowering the mango farmers from the northern zone in many ways, enabling them to sell mangoes using f-commerce and optimum digital integration.

The operator is utilising the power of f-commerce, backed by the power of its 4G network all across the country, to generate ‘Smart’ mango farmers in the industry.

The activity was simultaneously organised at Baneshwar in Rajshahi, and Rangpur, said a press release.

 The initiative is a part of the brand’s drive to digitally enable the country to realise its true potential, empowering communities and eliminating persisting digital divides in the process.

At the event, Sajjad Hasib, CMO, Grameenphone, said, “We believe connectivity plays a major role in empowering people from all walks of life. Our efforts to empower mango growers' communities symbolizes how we can play a role in advancing society forward in the upcoming digital revolution.”

The nine-day campaign ultimately helped about 11 thousand mango farmers and entrepreneurs to gain better understanding of how to operate their businesses online, and also learned to utilize the diverse offerings of MyGP, the one-stop solution app of Grameenphone, and other digital services provided by the operator.
