Agromovil Selected to Partner with USDA on a Project in Tanzania with Support from USAID
Agromovil to collaborate with Tanzanian ag leader, TAHA, to launch the platform in Tanzania, improving sustainability and efficiency in Tanzania’s horticultural sector.
Washington, D.C., October 2, 2020 -- Agromovil has been selected to participate in the “Facilitating Market Linkages in Tanzania” project through the USDA’s Foreign Agricultural Service, with support from USAID.
The project is designed to support growth in the Tanzanian horticultural sector, helping small and medium scale farmers as they seek to improve market linkages and put more product – more profitably – into the marketplace.
Agromovil will work with the Tanzania Horticultural Association (TAHA), a respected leader in the Tanzanian ag sector, implementing our tested technology linking farmers, buyers and transporters to make the small farmer ecosystem more profitable and efficient, and building data to help the sector become more resilient.
Based on our successful work in Colombia, Team Agromovil will work with TAHA to build a localized implementation of our app-based platform for use with TAHA’s large grower and buyer network. Agromovil will integrate local payment platforms and work with TAHA transport partners so:
Farmers can post goods for sale and MATCH with Buyers when crops are ready for pickup or advise the market of future production
Transporters can BATCH pickup and fill their trucks, so each trip to the countryside is more efficient and profitable
All parties can PAY on the platform, making payments faster and more secure
“It’s an exciting opportunity to work with USDA and USAID”, said Agromovil Founder and CEO Andrew Mack, “and to have the chance to work in Africa alongside a true sector leader like TAHA.”
Agromovil is a global Match-Batch-Pay platform that helps small farmers connect with new buyers, sell direct, and find optimized transport. The app-based platform makes small-scale agriculture faster, smarter, and more profitable globally. For more information, a video, and more on the Agromovil story, see www.agromovil.co.
