FarmDrive, a Kenyan enterprise, connects unbanked and underserved smallholder farmers to credit, while helping financial institutions cost-effectively increase their agricultural loan portfolios.
FarmDrive and the Sustainable Development Goals
Sustainable agriculture is the most effective tool to end poverty. When farmed properly, with quality inputs, the fertile land in Kenya and throughout Africa has the ability to lift millions out of poverty.
Enabling the 50 million smallholder farmers in Africa to increase their productivity will help them feed 9 Billion people by 2050.
FarmDrive’s alternative credit scoring model ensures financial inclusion for the disenfranchised women that make up 60% of African smallholder farmers.
We aim to revitalize agri-business and provide Africa’s youth with quality, sustainable economic opportunities by introducing data-driven tech solutions for the challenges faced in agriculture.
When smallholder farmers have access to credit, they can sustainably contribute to economic development while improving their livelihoods.
