myAgro is an award-winning social enterprise/non profit based in West Africa. We are building a model for savings layaway in Mali, Senegal, and Tanzania that can be adopted by other organizations to serve farmers throughout the world. The platform that uses a mobile technology platform to provide a comprehensive set of services: (1) Access to fertilizer, seed and other agricultural packages on mobile layaway, (2) On-time delivery (3) Technical training. Small-scale farmers across the globe make up 70% of the world’s poor. Our model has been shown to double farm income and helps farmers move out of poverty. We’ve grown from 240 farmers in 2011 to 60,000+ in 2019, and will continue to scale over the next five years while aiming for our North Star of reaching 1 million smallholder farmers by 2025. We’ve received early recognition for our work by Skoll Foundation, One Acre Fund and Mulago Foundation and received prestigious awards from: Echoing Green Fellowship, Rainer Arnhold Fellows, Draper Richards Kaplan Social Entrepreneurship.
