DigiFarm and Connected Farmer

DigiFarm offers smallholding farmers access to a suite of information and financial services, including discounted products, customised information on farming best practices, and access to credit and other financial facilities. Connected Farmer helps Agribusinesses and small holding farmers share information and transact.

IMPACT

A successful pilot was held during the year. Expected to register 10,000 farmers for the pilot, but received 74,000 registrations (33,000 within the first month) and trial completed with just under 19,000 active users. We intend to scale further in the year ahead. About eight Agribusinesses and over 50,000 farmers have registered on the Connected Farmer platform.
