Introduction: AGRIMOD LTD is an AgriTech business startup that implements digital solutions to the Agriculture by linking up small-scale farmers to customers, providing them with an online presence, and giving them access to a global audience, increasing access to local produces as customers can now easily find them by simply searching the catalog.



Small-scale farmers in the rural areas of South-Kivu Province of Democratic Republic of the Congo face a significant challenges of market access and profitability. They struggle to bring goods to markets. They are in lack of access to a wide market, inefficient market systems, lack of price transparency, and limited access to technology. This leads to postharvest losses, low income, limited growth, and thus perpetuates a cycle of poverty.

Statistics and Data outline that globally 1.3 billion tons of food are lost each year. (UN, FAO). Countries in Sub-Saharan Africa lose as much as 36% of their total harvested food, with up to 94% losses due to inefficient supply chains and modern solutions. The Eastern part of Democratic Republic of the Congo produces an immense quantity of vegetables, fruits and grains, about 40% of these products are wasted because of lack of means of reaching the markets and potential customers. This fact proves that small-scale farmers in rural areas of Democratic Republic of the Congo get low income; they get less than $100 per month.
