‘Tulaa connects farmers to markets by providing financial input for example fertilizers, agro-chemicals and seeds in the future, most of them focus on potato and tomato farming. There is a gap in agriculture when it comes to financing smallholding farmers because they don’t have access to title deeds or security for going to the bank to get loans. We have over 10,000 farmers on the platform but we also incur challenges which are normal in any business setting. We have targeted Potato farmers in Narok and Nakuru through our field officers, through partnerships with Sengeta we have been able to educate farmers and hold training on how to use various inputs.
Farmers are happy and satisfied with what we provide. We have partnered with Sendy to facilitate transportation in terms of connecting farmers to traders especially during harvest seasons. Our plan is to sign up more farmers and work with them financially as we look into regional expansion.’
