Usomi is an agricultural technology company that seeks to address the poor adoption of agricultural technologies and farming best practices. The company achieves this by working with smallholder farmers in rainfed systems to increase access to the right inputs, markets, and knowledge and information.

Market Opportunity/ Problem

The main challenge facing smallholder farmers is the segmented nature of the value chains they operate in. Farmers cannot easily get inputs and services, are fleeced by well-connected middlemen who deny them direct access to high-value markets, and the unpredictable supply of produce, most of which doesn’t meet market requirements in terms of quality and volume. Usomi’s market interventions seek to build a structured trading platform that drives maximal productivity, guaranteed market access, and inclusive value chain participation for smallholder farmers in Kenya and Eastern Africa.
