Our Services

Group Input Loan Facility

Through partnerships with existing Micro finance institutions, and our network of village agents, we provide agricultural loans to farmer groups.

The agents mobilize farmers into groups and help the groups become credit worthy through training in group savings and credit as well as financial literacy.

The agents then monitor groups and provide updates on the progress throughout the farming and ensure that the groups adhere to the loan payment plan.

Mobile-based Extension

We provide a free medium of information exchange where farmers ask any questions related to agriculture in their own languages, on any kind of phone, free of charge and receive feedback from extension officers around the country.

Our extension service heavily relies on partnerships with existing actors in the agricultural extension ecosystem. We integrate within their traditional extension to improve their efficiency and effectiveness

Market and Weather Information

We collect information from over 33 markets across Uganda and provide it to farmers via mobile phones in their local languages. By providing reliable and localized market information, we help to guide farmers’ decision-making on where, what, when and whom to sell to.

Our weather information service provides reliable and localized weather information to farmers on their mobile phones, in their local languages. You can choose to receive weather information for your parish or specific to your farm.

Agriculture Insurance

AIC is a consortium of insurance companies providing subsidized agriculture insurance under the Uganda Agricultural Insurance Scheme (UAIS) a Public Private Partnership (PPP) arrangement with Uganda Insurers Association (UIA) and Government of Uganda.

The service is commission based so the more insurance policies the agents sell, the more money they make. The commission helps agents meet their operational costs and provides an incentive for enhancing the service.

Mobile Learning

More than 3 billion people – the majority of which live in rural areas – have no access to the internet.

In a world where access to information and other services is becoming more dependent on the internet, organizations and governments find it difficult to reach rural, disconnected communities.

Our mobile learning service improves access to information and other critical services to unreached rural communities via mobile technology in local languages.

Farmer Profiling

Farmer profiling is the anchor of the M-Omulimisa platform. All the other services provided by the platform such as input demand aggregation, extension services, and micro input loans rely on accurate farmer profiles collected through our network of village agents.

The profiling module is made up of three components: data collection forms, web server, and the web client. The platform uses our mobile application for data collection and is purposely built to improve the effectiveness, timeliness, and accuracy of data collection from rural areas where internet connectivity may not be reliable.
