About images

As the backbone of most African economies and the livelihoods of the world’s poor, farmers are indeed, and always have been, agents of change. They just need a little encouragement, or the right types of supports and enabling environments. Favorable policies and regulatory frameworks that enable the use and penetration of mobile phone or internet usage in rural areas is a great start. Access to digital technology can make the distance between a remote farmer and the market even shorter than a straight line. Whereas many smallholders travel several hours by foot from most markets, mobile platforms can share market price information or connect farmers to buyers. In an instant and farmers can easily access necessary information related to good productivity.

Climate change is a real and present threat to African food security that is only set to get worse. Compounded with population growth, severe soil degradation across much of the continent, weak and disconnected markets, and limited access to up to date weather information, the situation could be very bleak. Better access to information through digital technology platforms however can help farmers to overcome some of these barriers to adaptation and growth.

Farming is back-breaking labor. Literally. Most farmers in Africa today have very limited access to improved farming equipment or machinery, which means they use centuries-old tools such as the hand hoe and animal powered plows. And they don’t do this just for sport. But to be better businessmen and businesswomen, they need access to a variety of resources – finance, education, inputs – all of which can be provided or accelerated by the use of mobile money or agricultural extension platforms.
