80 million smallholder farmers/families in Nigeria are battling repercussions of weather, volatile commodity prices, food shortage and poor yield. As staple crop, cassava yield per hectare in Nigeria is 5 tons instead of 25 tons per hectare requirement. This is due to a lack of access to improved agricultural services, credit, insurance and input supply to 90% smallholder farmers population. As a result, this increases their risk and vulnerability, and puts pressure on food security for 200 million population.
Our platform improves farmers’ access to finance, high-quality inputs, fertilizer and access to markets. It also bolsters first mile businesses that supply inputs to smallholder farmers and support AgriFood processors to buy from smallholder farmers, delivering mutual benefits to both farmers and service providers. Our solution assists farmers to make confident decisions, including plant nutrient requirement, soil composition and also helps to determine yields and profitability of an expected investment.
