funding myAgro to help farmers become self-sufficient in Senegal

In partnership with

the project

myAgro is a nonprofit social enterprise that enables smallholder farmers to save up their own funds to invest in high-quality seed, fertiliser, tools and agricultural training. Using mobile phone scratchcards, farmers can save up small amounts of money each week towards a complete package of agricultural inputs delivered just in time for planting. With our funding, they’re testing new vegetable packages for farmers in Senegal. These investments allow farmers to grow 50-100% more food each season and thereby increase their income. myAgro’s aim is to help 1 million small-scale farmers to increase their income by $1.50 per day by 2025. They’re well on their way to meeting this goal, and we’re excited to be part of it.
