enabler of business
Put simply, our mission is to provide every input needed for businesses in Africa to thrive.
To date, we have enabled tens of thousands of smallholder farmers to optimise their productivity and profits by opening up access to low-cost finance, technology, energy, seeds, fertilizer, irrigation, transportation, storage, processing and marketing. This is only the beginning.
At the same time as making farming more productive, we are breaking the value-destroying generational cycle of agriculture as the default source of employment — and consequently lower per capita yields— by creating opportunities for ordinary people to build livelihoods in other lucrative sectors.
The key to unlocking these opportunities is infrastructure – physical, online and financial – including clean and reliable energy, affordable credit and every aspect of connectivity.

Addressing the connectivity challenge
Operating across such multiple and diverse areas is unparalleled anywhere in the world. In Africa, it is essential because our severe logistical challenges are inter-related.
We are the first truly integrated solutions provider tackling barriers for ordinary businesses in Africa. In doing so, we are driving diversification to develop meaningful economic activity beyond the staple sectors of agriculture, minerals and mining to achieve high-value employment and livelihoods across the continent.
Agriculture is the default source of employment in Africa. But over-employment causes lower value per farmer. The more that land is consolidated and activity scaled, the more wealth is generated for farmers, which enriches local economies, and the more people are free to work in diverse and profitable sectors.
