About Crop2Cash Limited
Crop2Cash provides a transparent platform that allows banks and formal lenders to vet groups of smallholder farmers in need of credit based on data inputs from farmers, fund them directly and track usage of credit. Our mobile money channel also makes it possible for farmers to send and receive payments from both banks and offtakers, who are otherwise unable to pay farmers in cash. Moreover, Crop2Cash offers groups of farmers access to mechanization, seeds, chemicals and insurance through a digitized agricultural supply chain via USSD.
