I'm A University Student In A Local Institution And Have Always Had A Passion For Agriculture When I Was Growing Up Because It Resonated With Me Growing Up On A Farm. So From That Background I Was Always On The Lookout For How I Could Be Involved In It Until I Stumbled Upon My Project. So From That I Had Its Passion And Drive And It What I Now Live Breathe And Do Through My Covid Days

We are pioneering financial inclusion for unbanked and underserved smallholder farmers through big data and machine learning. To power the resilience and profitability of smallholder farmers. We use insurance and credit products to help smallholder farmers endure climate risks, improve their farming practices, and bolster their incomes over time. We collect and aggregate alternative datasets from multiple sources to build credit scores for smallholder farmers. Alternative datasets are analyzed using our machine learning algorithm to produce relevant credit scores for smallholder farmers and decision tools that enable financial institutions to develop small-scale agricultural loan products. We provide creative inclusive insurance packages for smallholder farmers by aggregation of data, where we use data such as satellite data, weather station and Geo sys data to create indexes levels for each crop. We handle end to end management of the delivery of insurance to farmers, including field operations, farmer onboarding/education and claims assessment and payouts with main price Yield Index Insurance Weather Index Insurance which is low cost and easily accessible to smallholder farmers without the need to visit the farmers site.
