As they struggle with the restrictions imposed by state of emergency orders, farmers are increasingly turning to online marketplaces to sell their wares to customers directly. 

Leading local information technology Skyeye, through its new and popular ‘Maua’ mobile phone application, is providing an online forum for a variety of farmers to sell their wares. Among those participating include Women in Business Development Inc. (W.I.B.D.I.); the Poutasi Development Trust; the Samoa Victim Support Group and a variety of rural and artisan farmers.
