Unfortunately, Qara inhabitants were very few and needed more fighting experience to defend their marketplace, but they were creative and problem solvers. They decided to build a fortress using “Kershef” - a local material made of silt mixed with salt - on top of a nearby rocky mountain, which was a position that would give them 360 visibility over the valley, and protect them from hostiles. With only one legitimate gate and 360-degree visibility over the valley, The fortress became an impenetrable shield against unwelcome visitors, transforming into a secure marketplace. Qara’s creative idea was successful, and inhabitants eventually moved all their homes into the fortress to enjoy peace and prosperity. Inspired by the resilience and creativity of Qara's inhabitants and their stories, our tech startup, aptly named Qara, draws its strength from the village's history. Our mission is to empower businesses with innovative digital solutions that create synergies across the whole supply chain and promote transparency, traceability, and end-consumer trust.
