Ugandan and other small-scale farmers in Africa are set to benefit from the latest services unveiled by agriBORA at the ongoing GITEX global digital summit in Makarrech, Morocco.
agriBORA, a leading agri-fin-tech company unveiled two innovative services on its digital platform, designed to empower smallholder farmers and promote sustainable agriculture practices.
agriBORA is committed to achieving financial inclusion and securing fair prices for unbanked smallholder farmers operating in unstructured value chains in Africa. The company aims to assist farmers in overcoming challenges, including those arising from climate change, while facilitating their adaptation to new circumstances.
“Through technology and innovation, we are confident that agriBORA’s transformative services will revolutionize the agricultural landscape across the African continent,” the company boss said.
Already providing a comprehensive range of services to smallholder farmers and their grassroots business partners through agriHUBS, agriBORA is excited to introduce the agriWALLET and agriPOS solutions.
The groundbreaking agriWALLET empowers farmers to proactively manage their finances, transforming farming into a business venture rather than a struggle for survival.
Simultaneously, the agriPOS application, tailored for hub managers, enhances small business operations with effective CRM and point-of-sale functionalities.
agriBORA’s future plans include the forthcoming launch of agriKOPA, a credit service slated for release later this year. This pioneering offering will introduce a cutting-edge credit scorecard, leveraging satellite data and blockchain technology to provide a more objective assessment of lending risks.
Notably, agriKOPA aims to foster financial inclusion, particularly benefiting women and young people while driving economic growth within agricultural communities.
“We are delighted to participate in GITEX Africa 2023 and unveil our latest services,” said Kizito Odhiambo, Founder & CEO of agriBORA.
“Our mission is to disrupt hunger by empowering smallholder farmers, equipping them with financial management tools, and facilitating their access to credit through their local business partners, the hubs. Through technology and innovation, we are confident that agriBORA’s transformative services will revolutionize the agricultural landscape across Kenya and the African continent,” he added.
