Abstract

Our team collaborated with The Big Issue South Africa “Vendors of the Month” to advance The Big Issue’s new “online marketplace” that features profiles of vendors and allows them to sell online while sharing moments from their lives. We worked with vendor mentors to create a vendor-run profile program that will allow for sustainable updating of these pages. The program explains the purpose of the marketplace, creates a community for vendors, assists in photo training and helps update their profiles.
