More than 2 billion people survive on smallholder farming, yet many poor farmers have limited or no access to information and capital that will improve their livelihoods. Grameen Foundation works with government, the private sector and civil society to empower farmers with relevant, timely and actionable information and financial services. These resources are delivered through tailored mobile solutions and networks of trusted intermediaries. By combining mobile technology solutions with a methodology for leveraging local change agents, we are able to catalyze behavior change that leads to sustainable improvements in the economic lives of the poor.
Financial service providers reach relatively few rural poor and offer a limited range of services. We are building and strengthening networks that can deliver financial services and essential information to farmers.
We are using human networks and mobile technology to help smallholder famers improve their lives and livelihoods.
