Hello Tractor provides a farm fleet management solution and smart-phone app for small-holder farmers to book farm equipment owners to service their land. Equipment access gives farmers the opportunity to develop an efficient, sustainable farm cycle from sow to harvest which will expand their business and alleviate themselves from poverty. For resource-poor farmers, labor shortages often leads to under-cultivation, poor harvests and lost income, targeted farm mechanization has proven to be an effective solution to these shortages. Despite this, small farmers throughout Africa lack access to tractors to improve farm productivity. Hello Tractor impacts the community, farmers, and smart tractor owners. Communities with Hello Tractor’s equipment sharing solution see higher land utilization with an increase in community income and food security.
