developing and deploying low cost, blockchain based technology solutions to build efficient digital supply chains, from farmer to consumer.

WHY?

1.7 billion people in the world are “unbanked”

The ‘Last Mile’ is rural, remote, with low income and in need of a path to financial inclusion. An integral part of global supply chains  and an untapped market with an enormous potential, ‘Last Mile’ communities still lack  tools for proof of identity,  trustworthy records of sale of produce and access to basic goods and services like credit, education and healthcare.

Learn how we connect farmers to cooperatives, cooperatives to commodity buyers and how we integrate financial and commercial partners, opening the doors to ‘Last Mile’ market opportunities, while nurturing local economies.

It's a win-win.

Award Winning Technology

“All AgUnity products are developed through human-centered design, have off-line capability and incorporate blockchain technology in order to increase trust, data transparency and security”

Connecting commodity buyers, service providers and development programmes with remote communities - buy, sell and support more efficiently.
Creating digital identities and collating farmer income data resulting in KYC validation and financial inclusion.
Establishing stable market systems trading based on trust and reliability with a unique model of connectivity, repeatable and scalable in different parts of the globe.
Making technology available and relevant for low digital literacy users, for the first time through the AgUnity suite of solutions.

problems we solve

problems we solve

Lack of Digital Identity

1 billion people around the world don’t have a legal form of identity. By simply providing a farmer with a viable form of identification, we unlock access to basic services, banking and credit opportunities. For financial service providers, this functionality opens the door to a previously unreachable market of 1.7B potential new clients.

Lack of Trust (in the system)

An issue that western societies may not easily relate to but easily the biggest hurdle for low income farming communities. Fortunately, this is overcome using blockchain technology. With immutable and verifiable record keeping, this system replaces paper receipts and verbal agreements and so allows participating users to build a solid foundation of trust.

Safer Money

Once smallholder farmers increase their income, being able to spend it on useful and easily accessible products is challenging in itself. With our Digital Wallet and Online Market functionalities, farmers will benefit from safer transactions and the ability to store earnings without holding cash, save money, buy tools,  assets or pay for services like education and healthcare.

Unreliable Data Systems

While NGOs and development organisations struggle with managing complex data and accessing the real impact of their projects, commodity buyers and traders often lack systems to track and manage products along supply chains with remote legs. The AgUnity platform offers a wide range of adaptability and data power to effectively respond to the challenges faced by each partner.

Digital Literacy Gap

Developing world farmers do not have the digital skills to engage with existing technologies.  AgUnity’s platform and app are designed with a participatory design method and can be used by communities with limited literacy anywhere in the world to connect with buyers and suppliers alike.

No network? No problem

When no mobile reception or data is available, users can still conduct transactions. These are stored and cached locally in the system, until the user gets access to the network.

Covid–19 virus is still threatening smallholder agribusinesses, wreaking havoc on sustainable economic growth and globalisation.

The biggest challenge? Food markets are the worst vectors for spreading viruses in farming villages. Our existing digital solutions required only a few small changes to address the need for  safe food supply during the pandemic; an AgUnity smartphone is all that is needed to carry on business as usual.

The AgriUT Foundation

Advancing Social Impact through Blockchain

AgUnity has recently created an independent charitable entity to complement its smartphone platform for smallholder farmers called the AgriUT Foundation.

AgriUT Foundation Limited (AFL) is a Non-Profit Social Impact organisation that develops and delivers technology for good into the hands of these Last Mile people. The AFL works with like-minded members, corporations, and organisations that are already active in the Last Mile to foster technology-driven solutions to systemic problems; like world poverty, climate change, and inclusion (technology, finance, gender, etc.). AFL brings modern, high-impact technology into Last Mile communities to bring previously isolated farming communities into international markets, financial services, education, and health services – as well as connections to consumers in wealthy nations.

agriwards

Agriwards program allows consumers to digitally engage with the originating farmer and it enables the first step in financially empowering the farming communities. It transfers embedded value from the supermarket shelf directly to farmers which is then used within the AgriUT ecosystem.​ In the future, Agriwards will also be a platform that connects impact driven individuals and organisations with projects that empower farming communities.

agrigata

Agrigata is a company established to support the ecosystem created by AgUnity, AgriUT Foundation and Agriwards. The ecosystem is dedicated to the agriculture sector which powers the sustainable development of smallholder farmers worldwide, providing useful and relevant technology that connects the last mile. Agrigata is an important element in the overall AgriUT ecosystem enabling farmer inclusion.

Agrigata supports the continued flow of this ecosystem through marketing and business development services. By implementing and promoting the philosophy and vision of the three organisations, Agrigata provides benefits to all participants including product companies, consumers and most importantly the farmer and their communities.​

and what they have to say

“It has been a pleasure working with AgUnity. AgUnity’s field missions were carried out in way that exemplified human-centered design at its best as the team lived with its users (farmers), designing AgUnity’s solution together."

Nicolas Umuhizi
New Ventures Consultant

"It can help me to communicate with other farmers, and what we need to do to cooperate together. I can use this phone to track price per kilo and save much time than walking to the market. This solution would help me a lot."

Freda Ireng

“Impressed by the strategic vision and nimble agility of the AgUnity team, especially over the last couple of months as they make monumental decisions which we believe will lead to massive social impact & great financial returns.”
