There are over 8,000,000 smallholder farmers in Kenya, 40,000,000 in East Africa and nearly one billion around the world. Many of these farmers are unable to access fair prices on the global market.
Although smallholder farmers often are the low-cost producers of a given crop, agricultural buyers prefer to trade with one seller rather than many individuals.
Our technical field agents provide farmers with advice and support throughout the growing season, and help them aggregate crops for sale to large buyers.
Farmshine's platform connects farmers with the information, suppliers and service providers they need to minimize costs and maximize harvests.
Eliminate several layers of middlemen to connect low-cost producers directly with end buyers.
Aggregate farmers for advantageous rates on seeds and other inputs, small loans and crop insurance.
Ensure traceability of farmers' production, improving both value chain transparency and farmers' access to markets and credit.
Give farmers the information and contacts they need to access markets for organic and high value crops.
