MUTUAL BENEFITS

Universidad San Francisco de Quito (Ecuador)

Problem:

In today's world, people are not conscious or considerate of what they have or of others. This has led many people to be finally discard those objects, as if it were garbage (seriously affecting the pollution of the planet). Other people with less economic capacity are unable to obtain goods of their liking. There are organizations that need donations to continue subsisting.

Idea:

This is why MUTUAL BENEFITS is proposed as the platform to solve these problems. This platform will allow those people who have objects that they no longer use, to exchange them for others that are of interest to them. All this without the need to use money, but giving back the value that one considers for such goods. A section will be included where several cases of organizations will be shown with a brief description, to encourage people to donate and not just exchange.

Main Beneficiaries:

There will be several beneficiaries: those who do not have the economic possibilities of acquiring goods with cash, organizations that need donations to continue subsisting, the environment by not continuing to contribute to generate more waste. Being a platform that anyone can use, we target the adult population (18-54 years) in Ecuador (about 7 million people), candidates for interest and use of technology.
