ABU DHABI – Sheika Fatima bint Mubarak, Chairwoman of the Genera’ Women’s Union, GWO, President of the Supreme Council for Motherhood and Childhood, and Supreme Chairwoman of the Family Development Foundation, FED, instructed the establishment of a virtual market for productive families, in light of her belief in the importance of adopting innovative solutions to create equal investment opportunities and promote national products and small and medium-sized enterprises, SME.
‘We must all benefit from available tools, invest in the energies of productive families, develop skills, and enable them to contribute to the country’s sustainable development process, through employing modern technologies to create investment opportunities that comply with the current circumstances’, she said.
As part of Sheikha Fatima’s directives to support and empower productive families, the application, ‘Matjari (My Shop) Market for Productive Families’ was launched in 2015 to facilitate community access to the products of productive families.
The application enables users to ship for customized products within a safe and flexible environment that allows easy delivery and payment.
The new application spares shoppers the burden of leaving their homes and enables them to buy traditional and heritage products, food, fashion and perfumes online, as well as speak directly to shop owners.
The application represents a boom in modern shopping, especially during the current crisis caused by the coronavirus pandemic, which has encouraged many people to do their shopping online, under the framework of relevant precautionary measures.
