In partnership with the digital agency ByFilling, YUX Dakar has recently carried out a qualitative study on street vendors in Senegal. Our designers spent several days getting in touch with the merchants to understand their technological uses, frustrations and aspirations. The aim of this public study is to inspire the design of useful digital solutions adapted to their daily lives.

Our goal in sharing freely the results of this Human Centered Design study is to initiate a thinking on the development of innovations adapted to street sellers. In a more general initiative, we also want to share our methodologies so that a maximum of startups may use them in their respective fields.
