Yo Neighbor, which debuted in the UAE in March 2017, is a "sharing" app that allows users to borrow rarely used items from one another.
Communication takes place through the app's messaging platform, but payments are made in cash rather than through the app.
Kristel Hoch, a Lebanese woman living in the United Arab Emirates, created the app. She says the idea for the app came to her after she moved to the country. "Where I come from in Lebanon, it is normal to knock on the neighbor's door and borrow something," she says. When I first moved to the UAE, my conversations with my neighbours were always formal and brief; I didn't feel comfortable borrowing anything from them because I didn't know them.
