How Tingo Mobile is connecting African Farmers

The co-founder and CEO of Tingo Mobile, Dozy Mmobuosi in a chat with Techpoint, reveals that Tingo’s online platform, Nwasa, is a bridge to connect African farmers to the rest of the world.

Nwassa launched in January 2019 as "a holistic platform that attempts to connect every player in the entire agriculture value chain". The platform allows farmers to sell produce in Africa and beyond. 

Nwassa is expected to be processing 2mn transactions per day by September 2019. 

Partnerships for logistics and credit facilities 

To enable it cater to logistical needs, Tingo works with local and regional logistics partners. These partners take care of packaging, transportation and warehousing, among others

This means farmers only have to worry about their farming activities while Tingo takes care of every other thing from the point of harvest.

Currently, Nwassa only caters to companies and people buying farm produce in large quantities but according to Mmobuosi, the platform will be opening its retail channel in May, 2019.
