Scientist and entrepreneur - 14. Mamadou Sidibé: a social network that supports local trade and travels

Retailers and craftsmen can advertise their products and services with vocal messages. And the GPS call guides them for deliveries.

"Imagine I want to enter my profile. I can say: "My name is Mamadou Sidibé". It's very simple.

But I can also say: "My name is Mamadou Sidibé, I am a plumber in the Toulouse Capitole district. If you need plumbing work you can call me, I come to your house, and it's cheap."

Let's make it a work tool.

From there we set up what we call sound photos, voice publications, publications with sound photos. I can take a picture and associate a sound.

The housekeeper is the one who published this: you see, she has no name. Her name was said vocally. And then she says, "here are seasonal fruits. If you need some, reach me with the comments for prices."

Then, there is another problem: how do we make the delivery? In Africa, at least in my country, the addresses are not written, or not known. So we invented GPS navigation call.

How does it work? I want to invite you to my place. So I give a GPS navigation call. You can see the signs when you enter, but instead of a call, it's navigation! You take and open the GPS, and it brings you to where I am: no address to know, no GPS position to handle like with other tools.

From there, we put in Lenali what we call the ecosystem. All I just presented constitutes Lenali Core. From there we can do many other things. Someone will be able to come to the platform to create their job section, another person to do technology, market, health, and so on."
