Why are you interested in FrontlineSMS? How did you hear about it? (To help us filter out spammers, we need as MUCH detail as possible, else we may not be able to approve your request. If you'd rather not share this information openly please email info@frontlinesms.com before joining)
Trying to develop M&E tools using Frontline and am rather interested to see what others are doing in this area.
Tell us about you. (Please also add an image to your profile)
I am a development consultant normally based in Kigali, Rwanda. But currently I am serving as a Technical Assistant within the Ministry of Agriculture in Cote d'Ivoire.

I am currently developing two tools through frontline. One is a data collection tool for quantitative surveys and the other is a Market Information System to provide market prices to farmers.
