Esoko provides a simple but powerful communication tool for businesses, projects, NGOs and governments to connect with farmers.
Use any mix of our web and mobile apps, original agricultural content, and call centre services for your marketing, monitoring and advisory needs.
An innovative agricultural value chain digitization service that combines mobile & web technologies with a super-agent network to provide critical services to thousands of smallholders across vulnerable farming communities. These services include:
– credit to finance agricultural operations;
– insurance to increase farmer resilience to emerging threats and economic stressors;
– input subsidy programs; and
– access to input and output markets
The service creates an ecosystem of key value chain actors – input providers, mechanization service providers, financial institutions (+ insurance companies) and grain off-takers. All transactions within the value chain are recorded and digitized using smart cards enabled by Esoko’s mobile money wallet and Visa, the global payment provider, helping the farmer build a history of transactions which could be used by third parties such as financial institutions to assess and provide credit/loans to these farmers. The system also enables bio-metric verification for interventions such as subsidy programs within the agricultural industry and making cash payments to the last mile.
