Agrics Tanzania

Agrics Ltd. sells high quality seeds and fertilizer to smallholder farmers in Northern Tanzania on credit. Better seeds and fertilizer in combination with training in agriculture make a better harvest. ‘On credit’ makes it affordable for the smallholder to buy it.

Agrics’ goals are both financial and social. Agrics wants to provide as many smallholders as possible with quality inputs and training in agriculture, providing an important contribution to their income and food security. Agrics aims to create a sustainable and scalable model.
Currently close to 12.000 smallholder farmers in Northern Tanzania are client. The ambition is to serve more then 41.000 smallholder farmers by 2018. To reach this, investment is required.
