Business Case

Farmers and stakeholders will receive informaton on markets, prices, seeds and other information by downloading the Mobile App for free and effect a payment of monthly subscription fee to the tune of 2,000frs. There is no central authority providing such services in the Country and many farmers realise loss of income through wastage, lack of storage facilities, lack of information and capital. Thus, this project will enhance improvement in the system. In the next two years, we are going to add the weather information.

  1. -Reach out to 100,000 farmers in Cameroon in the next three years using our Mobile App.
  2. - Step up agricultural productivity of farmers by 10% each year in Cameroon
