Tanzanian farmers secure land and food using drone technology

Due to the difficulties faced by farmers in Tanzania to obtain credit with no bankable assets or collateral, Rose Funja, ICT entrepreneur, has developed AgrInfo  which identifies farmers, the size and location of their farms and the crops they cultivate, and the information is then sent to financial institutions, where they are used to evaluate credit worthiness.

Funja said that over 300 farmers in the Tanzanian capital have access to financial institution using AgrInfo, and there are plans to reach 1 million subscribers.
