Smallholder agriculture is the biggest industry on earth. Over 1 billion smallholder farmers produce 70% of the world’s food, and four of the five most traded commodities on earth, yet the vast majority lack access to the internet and even basic information to help them solve problems or share ideas.
Wefarm is a platform for these 1 billion farmers. It is already the world’s largest farmer-to-farmer digital network, with more than 1 million farmers using their ecosystem in Kenya and Uganda alone. Their farmers share more than 40,000 questions and answers every day.
Farmers connect with one another to solve problems, share ideas, and spread innovation, for free, and without needing an internet connection, as Wefarm works even through SMS. Utilising the latest machine learning technology, Wefarm’s service gets bespoke, crowd- sourced information to help farmers increase yields, gain insight into pricing, tackle the effects of climate change, source the best quality seeds, fertiliser, and loans and diversify their agricultural interests.
