Who we are

iGrowers Information Hub is a social enterprise that was formed to create community-based spaces for farmers to be able to access up-to-date farming information, technologies, climate smart agronomic services, and most importantly a direct link to the market.

The community-based spaces dubbed iGrowers InfoHubs consist of communities of small-scale farmers willing to work hard and produce good quality produce for fair market prices. The InfoHubs are run from a community based office where last mile agricultural technologies and service provision are coordinated and where community youth service providers are contracted to offer farmers with various farm services including but not limited to harvesting, planting, threshing, soil sampling, pruning, and many more.

What We Do

Linking small-scale Avocado and Nyota Beans farmers to markets

Our farmers enjoy fair prices because we coordinate last mile Avocado harvesting and aggregation using community-based hub agents and youth.

Through trained youth service providers, we harvest farm produce from hundreds of small-scale farmers ensuring tradeable volumes of consistently high quality standards are delivered to our customers.

Enabling access to climate smart technologies

Through strategic partnerships, we help our farmers access new climate smart technologies to build resilience against the negative effects of climate change. We offer soil testing,and remote sensing agronomic services.

Our farmers are also planting new climate smart bean varieties to be able to build resilience against the negative effects of climate change.

Enabling access to new Avocado and Nyota Beans technologies

We also offer access to new technologies that improve avocado and beans productivity for our farmers.

Our Approach

We work with and within the community

iGrowers sustainability is anchored on the use of scalable ICT systems that smoothen our farmer service delivery. Through ICT-run community based farmer hubs, our farmers are empowered by receiving last mile training, technology dissemination, and provision of agronomic advisory services.

Community based hub agents (CBHA) coordinate these last mile activities by contracting community youth service providers to offer various farm services.
