Our Idea

Why did your team choose to focus on this challenge?

Our team choose to focus on this challenge as we come from farming backgrounds where we can see where our idea coming into place for example a farmer could have bags of ration which his not using, he could trade with another farmer for another product for example a bale of silage. A bale of silage is worth 50 euro and a bag of ration is worth 10 the farmers would trade between each other one farmer giving 5 bags of ration for a bale of silage.

Outline the specific problem you would like to solve for your Hero and two or three solutions you think would help.

The specific problem our team would like to solve is the Cost of Living for our Hero to make his life that little bit easier for him and not having to be worrying about the cost of grocery’s and items and bills. One of our solutions for our Hero is save and trade which would be to save some of his salary and trade to invest his money to get more money and have a chance to make a lot more money so don’t have to be worrying about costs. Another solution we had for our Hero is when shopping for goods and groceries to look for the cheaper options such as labeled brands like Ballygowan and RiverRock and go for the store water which saves you money in the long term . And our last solution for our Hero on the Cost of Living is save electricity at home such as wash ur own dishes instead of the dishwasher one of the main consuming electricity items in the house and same with the dryer and hang your clothes outside instead of using the dryer which saves more electricity saving you more money which helps with the Cost of Living and your daily life.

Ask your Mentor anything.

What financial problems do you face from your day-to-day life, what would help these financial issues? Could you set up a budget plan which would mean having a set amount of money for the week and obviously go over the budget just in case if emergencies.
