What is special about the company M-shamba is that it is not only a provider of a digital platform but also a company that facilitates business relationships outside the digital space. M-shamba organises farmers into groups, which it also invites to trainings. The platform connects farmers with markets, but also fosters direct relationships between buyers and farmers. This connection was impossible in the past because of middlemen. This combination of digital and analogue services convinces us because it can enable a structural change for smallholder farmers.
