M-Farm is a transparency tool for Kenyan farmers where they simply SMS to get information pertaining to the retail price of their products, buy their farm inputs directly from manufacturers at favorable prices, and find buyers for their produce.
Farmers are plagued with problems affecting their productivity and livelihood–middlemen only offering meager prices for their produce, cereal boards delaying with payments, and expensive farm inputs.
M-Farm gives these farmers a voice by connecting them with each other in a virtual space. With M-Farm, they not only get affordable farm inputs but are also able to sell collectively.
Since many farmers do not have access to internet, M-Farm has adopted an SMS-based solution where they send a simple text to 20255 (Safaricom Users) depending on what they are looking for.
