M-shamba is a digital platform that supports agronomical practices and market access using simple tools like SMS and voice services. The platform is currently in use in Kenya, Uganda, Rwanda and Tanzania. It offers three programs: The first is ‘Digital literacy’, where they impart digital skills on the rural population to help farmers to understand their digital tools. The second is ‘market access’ where they link farmers to markets by identifying markets and supporting farmers with growing crops that meet the quality demands of the target market. The third program is ‘farming as a business’, which puts various resources and tools into the hands of farmers to enable them to create enterprise on their farms.
