Agrocenta was created to improve the agricultural value chain in Ghana by solving two critical problems rural-based smallholder farmers faced namely, access to market and access to finance, be it formal or informal. Their AgroTrade and AgroPay platforms solve these two problems. AgroTrade is a comprehensive supply chain platform that has smallholder farmers on one end and large off-takers on the other end so they can trade directly. AgroPay, their financial inclusion platform provides any smallholder farmer who has traded on AgroTrade with a financial (‘bank’) statement they can use to get access to finance.
