M-Farm (Kenya)

M-Farm, a company co-founded in 2010, was launched by three Kenyan women — Jamila Abass, Linda Kwamboka, and Susan Oguya — who met through iHub, Nairobi-based technology hub. Initially a texting tool that permitted subscribing farmers to find buyers for their produce and receive price information, the agribusiness company has evolved into a mobile application — thanks to a partnership with Samsung — to provide users with real-time crop information daily.
