Market Opportunity/ Problem
Most farmers are currently using small farm tools, and only 40% of them practice mechanization on their farms. This is because of the gap between the demand and supply of tractors and the fact that farmers do not have convenient access to tractors. On the other hand, tractor owners are losing potential revenue due to idle tractors. TROTRO Tractor comes with a solution that bridges this gap.
