What We Do
We leverage innovation and technology to provide solutions for smallholder farmers, and empower other agri-food stakeholders.
We leverage innovation and technology to solve problems that affect Africa’s Agriculture, exploring and developing channels that empower smallholder farmers, agribusinesses and the communities that support them to modernize their businesses, enrich their offerings and reach new opportunities across and beyond Africa.
We believe novel technologies will improve smallholder farmers productivity and profitability and the agricultural industry at large by leveraging ICT tools and other technology services to provide access to better financial services, risk covers in form of affordable insurance, the knowledge and skills to adopt new practices, and incentives aligned along the value chain to support farmers, private sector, and other agricultural stakeholders.
Globally, 1.34 billion people are employed in agriculture. Smallholder farmers produce and sell nearly 70% of the food consumed worldwide but remain financially excluded, increasingly vulnerable to changing climate patterns affecting their yields, and they make up half of those who are food insecure.
Small farm sizes, limited borrowing capacity, increasingly erratic climate, counterfeit inputs, difficult enabling environments, and volatile markets combine to make it a challenge for smallholder farmers to increase their income, or even feed themselves.
We leverage ICTs to redefine existing agricultural systems and structures by collaborating with Government institutions, private companies and organizations, while we continuously innovate to redefine agriculture and agribusiness; making it much more profitable for existing farmers and creating platforms to entice and attract the youths into the space.
We are helping farmers increase productivity and profit to meet growing urban demand by giving them access to better financial services, risk covers in form of affordable insurance, improve their knowledge and skills to adopt new practices, and incentives aligned along the value chain through farmers groups, private sectors, government and other agricultural stakeholders.
