PaygOps x One Acre Fund Series Episode 1: Technology to Support Farmers' Path to Prosperity
What happens when the full potential of PaygOps is put in favour of serving the largest network of smallholder farmers in Africa?
Our team went straight to the field, in Kakamega, Kenya, to meet with One Acre Fund and document how smallholder farmers are being able to unlock more products, value and services in their path to prosperity thanks to a new operating model put in place by the renowned non-profit social enterprise through PaygOps.
This is Episode 1 of PaygOps x One Acre Fund, a series of videos, articles, reports and resources through which we'll be exploring the multiple dimensions of a life-changing partnership set to revolutionise the agriculture sector in Africa.
