Farmers Gate is a demand aggregation platform to meet smallholder farmers' needs such as fertilizer, seeds, tractor services and markets for their produce. Our platform also provides opportunities for people to participate in agribusiness through purchases of farms, agricultural commodities and tractors.
What you purchase are owned by you, we only help to manage them for you to get better value. The promised value is the ROI indicated on each investment product displayed on our website.
We are an agribusiness with a mission to improve the incomes of 1 million smallholder farmers by 2024. We cannot do this alone which is why we call on you to participate while making great returns doing so.
Our Gatekeepers (these are youths in farming communities that help manage relationships with large numbers of smallholder farmers) allow us to work directly with smallholder farmers and help us provide them with farm inputs, tractor services and off-take of harvested produce when needed.
