EZ-Farming is on a mission to help smallholder farmers across Africa and the rest of the globe scale their farms fast, save time in accessing loans, save money by paying only at the end of production cycle and earn more income from good market prices. Smallholder farms with the potential to scale into commercial sizes are identified, curated by experts and listed on their platform.
At EZ-Farming, you can invest in farms selected by agricultural experts. Investors can choose farms that interest them and watch live through their drone monitoring systems and machine learning algorithms. EZ-Farming has partnered with several manufacturing and food processing companies to off-take farm produce.
