In Colombia, Qualcomm contributes to the Fishing with Mobile Nets project, an initiative that utilizes advanced wireless technologies, digital content, and a virtual community platform to promote the economic and social development of traditional fishermen, women and children in vulnerable fishing villages. The project provides participants with 3G or 4G LTE connected tablets and smartphones along with customized applications and training to support mobile education, improved business practices, and the development of economic activities. The adoption of mobile technologies resulted to an average monthly income increase of 17% among project participants from 2015-2017. The program has also expanded to 13 traditional fishing communities along Colombia’s coasts and rivers.
