Kuza One

In Kenya, Kuza One operates a platform and a programme which offer smallholder farmers mentoring, quality information, loans and marketing support. One member of each rural community is selected to be an “Agripreneur”, trained, provided with a backpack kit containing various mobile devices and then supported as they work as an agricultural extension worker. In their community, the Agripreneur can then offer farmers access to the platform’s various resources, such as educational videos, crop planning tools, information about loans and the agricultural market. They also help farmers to create harvest and business plans and to connect them with the market.
