Ifarm360 has ventured into fresh produce trade to facilitate better access to markets for our farmers. Relying on data collected from Kenyan farmers for over a period of 1 year and >1000 data points analyzed, it emerged that access to markets is the primary need of 75% of the farmers. The flow of farm commodity from farm to market in Kenya is a very long chain laden with inefficiencies at every stage, with farmers often relying on layers of brokers to connect them to markets. The inefficiencies contribute to poor farmer earnings, >40% post harvest losses, and higher prices of food to consumers.
Ifarm360 is addressing the market access challenge by setting up bulking/aggregation centers within farming communities and selling the produce to bulk buyers and business customers such as distributors, wholesale markets and supermarkets. We see this as a much needed value addition to our farmers who already benefit from our financing product and technical support to increase their productivity.
We would like to give our crowd investors an opportunity to support this venture, with solid returns on investment and a trail of social impact in our farming communities in Kenya. Ifarm360 has set up facilities (infrastructure) and systems to manage the risks and enable the success of this venture.
