More than 75 tonnes of lychee sold via MoMo

HÀ NỘI — More than 75 tonnes of lychee were sold via the e-wallet MoMo in the past 20 days as part of the programme ‘Supporting Vietnamese Agricultural Products’.

Nguyễn Bá Diệp, vice chairman and co-founder of MoMo said: “We first expected to sell about 20 tonnes of lychee in HCM City. Then we sold 17.5 tonnes on the first day and decided to sell in Hà Nội too.”

“The sale has opened a new direction for agricultural consumption in the 4.0 era,” he added.

 Đỗ Quốc Huy, Marketing Director of Saigon Co.op, said: “The programme will open up more opportunities for other agricultural products in the future.”

Diệp from Momo told Việt Nam News: “Farmers are often vulnerable in their agriculture production due to weather and price changes. If we can help sell their products from the beginning, it will help them be more proactive and have a more stable source of income and they will be eager to cultivate more.”

Diệp said selling local agricultural products on the digital platform brought a new buying experience for modern consumers.
