Connected Farmer

Why

Mezzanine’s ambition is to leverage our experience and build on the success to date through partnerships. Our aim is to industrialise the offering to connect tens of millions of farmers, across multiple crop value chains to global, regional, national and local stakeholders on an agnostic basis, and who represent the following critical functions and capabilities:

  • Mobile Network Operators
  • Banks and mobile money providers
  • Input providers
  • Buyers and off-takers
  • Content providers
  • Insurance providers
  • IoT and technology vendors
  • Logistics operators
  • Retail partners

It is a critical time to be involved in Africa’s digital evolution. This continent is unique in its ability to leapfrog previous revolutions and take a leading position in making the invisible visible and thus creating value for all market participants from farm to fork.

What

An agnostic digital platform that improves productivity, revenue and resilience for small scale farmers by connecting them to information, inputs, credit and buyers at scale.

Agriculture is a critically important sector in Africa. It is responsible for ⅕ of the continent’s GDP and almost 60% of employment. Importantly, some 250 million smallholder and subsistence farmers effectively drive food security in most African nations. Yet, probably less than 15% of these farmers have reliable access to information, markets and input credit, which can significantly increase productivity, yields and income. These farmers also face the global challenges of climate change, water scarcity, crop and livestock disease and post-harvest losses.

Mezzanine has invested nearly 10 years in developing and supporting digital solutions in Africa that enable access to and from the last mile and which solve for challenges relating to access. Our mission is to create productive societies and to that extent,  some 65 million people have benefitted from using our solutions in healthcare, agriculture, education and financial services.

Mezzanine’s Connected Farmer digital platform has the capacity to connect farmers in the most rural parts of Africa to a range of service and product providers, including input finance, buyers and insurers that are ordinarily faced with challenges in engaging and trading with this segment at scale.

The net effect is that productivity, yields and income rise for all players in this digitally enhanced ecosystem:

Where

Connected Farmer is currently being used in Kenya, South Africa, Zambia and Tanzania.
