We are pleased to announce that Ifarm360 is this year's WINNER of the International INNOVATION AWARD for SUSTAINABLE FOOD systems. A global award by the Food and Agricultural Organization (FAO) and the Federal Government of Switzerland.
Ifarm360 is awarded for leveraging technology to enable investors to crowdfund smallholder farmers in Kenya. In addition to access to finance, Ifarm360 offers smallholder farmers crop advisory and supervision, as well as farm inputs and equipment such as solar irrigation kits.
Ifarm360 further guarantees market access through a network of aggregation hubs-physical structures located within farming communities that enable bulking-up of produce to meet the demand of large off-takers.
Ifarm360 connects smallholder farmers, crowd Investors, and offtakes, creating a win-win business model. This award was awarded to Ifarm360 on 1st October.
Milka Owour, CEO of Ifarm360 was virtually present and this is what she had to say.
We dedicate this award to you, our hardworking smallholder farmers, our crowd investors and partners.
