    Project description

    The Eastern Africa Grain Council (EAGC) a private sector, a membership-based organization registered in Kenya through a partnership with various industry stakeholders has launched an online trading platform that links smallholder farmers to grain buyers through a networked and structured market mechanism. The platform performs a structured trade function that integrates the entire grain trade from farm to market. Through G-Soko, farmers are able to aggregate their produce through a certified warehouse and also access financial services using their grains as collateral. This platform is currently being used in 7 African countries.
