Sinergiaycredito also fundraises for the project

Sinergiaycrédito is an online tech platform which aims to foster social and local economy as well as development cooperation, solidarity and human ethics.

To ensure these goals the platform generates synergies when using its own technology based in trades between users. The trades don’t have to be between same users or at the same time. The system balances all the offers and bids allowing a fairer trade.

Also, Sienrgiaycrédito, integrates social and cooperation projects in the trades. For each 10€ given to a social cause, the user gets a reward of 200€ in credits to spent in trades within the platform.

Here, is where the relationship between Worldcoo and Sinergiaycrédito takes place. The project “Construction of a fenced area for crops” is now listed also inside the Sinergiaycrédito’s platform allowing users to fundraise it.

We expect that this collaboration helps the project in its funding needs and allows Fundació Campaner NGO to bring the needed help to the beneficiaries of Diffa.

Where’s Diffa?

Diffa is a region situated in the southeast extreme of Niger. Its capital it’s also called Diffa and it’s near the country’s border with Nigeria. In 2010, the region had a population of 473,563 people, 51 % of men; in a country where the same year the population was more than 15 million people.

Niger is a relatively young country, the average age in 2011 was 15 years. This is due to the fact there is a significant number of children per woman in the country, 7.1. The mortality rate is no one of the highest in sub-Saharan Africa, as life expectancy for both men and women is around 60 years.

The economy of Niger, and also Diffa’s Region, is primarily agricultural, based upon pastoralism and farming. The major crop, grown both for subsistence and sale, is Millet, especially drought tolerant varieties.
