Born out of the challenge farmers faced in accessing agricultural finance, FarmDrive currently connects smallholder farmers to loans and financial management tools through mobile phones in Kenya. Founded by Rita Kimani and Peris Bosire in 2014, FarmDrive encourages farmers to register via phone and through this they are able to keep records of expenses, revenues and yield, apply for approvals and obtain payments through M-PESA-a mobile banking service that allows users to store and transfer money through their mobile phones.
