Digitally empowering last mile agripreneurs

Empowering Agripreneurs for Sustainable Growth


AIS partnered with Cereal Growers Association (CGA) in a project funded by IKEA foundation through AGRA. The ‘Scaling out regenerative agriculture through the development of Pulse value chain in Makueni county’ aimed at enhancing food security and resilience using conservation and rehabilitation methods. The program supported last mile agripreneurs modelled as village-based advisors (VBAs) to enhance their business skills, set up operational structures and systems for business growth.


  •  We provided business and digital skills training to the team of 110 village-based advisors (VBAs) and introduced the agripreneurs to AIS Kilimo mobile app.
  • The app provided digital support to the last mile agripreneurs and enabled them make data based informed business decisions regarding their daily operations and profitability levels.
