testimonials ABOUT OUR SOLUTION

“Our farmers have been very supportive in our initiatives to introduce AgUnity projects. They are eager and looking forward to it. Most problems that our farmers face are related to lack of access to electricity and communication networks. These are major issues but we will work within what we have.

I can say that our work with AgUnity is indeed opening some understanding with our farmers and hope we can launch trials and be able to implement our project this year.”

"AgUnity enables farmers to digitally track transactions through QR codes stored on a distributed ledger, designed to improve trust within agri-value chains, and between farmers and farmer cooperatives in particular."

Digital Financial Services for Agriculture Publication
International Finance Cooperation & Mastercard Foundation

"AgUnity provide unique identities for farmers on their platforms and register individual transactions. This allows farmers to work in an atmosphere of trust with farmer cooperatives while also developing a ‘bankable’ transaction record that is immutable and can be made accessible to financial institutions with the farmer’s permission."
