The Connected Farmer Alliance Announces Public-Private Partnership with TechnoServe
Oct 14 14
The Connected Farmer Alliance (CFA), a public-private partnership between Vodafone Group, the US Agency for International Development (USAID) and TechnoServe, has announced its first commercial agreement to use mobile technology to increase the productivity of thousands of low-income, smallholder farmers in Tanzania. Under the agreement between the CFA, agribusiness Olam International and Vodacom Tanzania, around 30,000 of Olam's coffee, cotton and cocoa smallholder farmers in Tanzania will benefit from: farming advice via text message; notifications about upcoming training sessions and events; real-time information about changes in market prices; and the introduction of mobile money transfer using Vodafone's M-Pesa service in place of cash from December 2014 onwards, giving farmers greater control over their finances and increasing security. TechnoServe will also provide training for Olam International staff and farmers.
