During an evaluation of the user needs assessment of Agricultural Market Information System (SIMA) in 2000, many traders had expressed their willingness to provide more information to SIMA. The various types of information mentioned by traders included information on: (i) products available for sale or for purchase, (ii) quantities available for purchase, and (iii) who has the product and where to buy the product (SIMA Team, 2001). Other participants, such as Non- Governmental Organizations (NGOs) that work with groups of producers, had placed the emphasis on the need for information on new products and market opportunities for regional or international exports, as well as information relative to quality, quantities, person of contact, and other conditions of delivery.
