525 million smallholder farmers grow 70% of the world’s food, yet they’re among the poorest people on earth.
We're changing that.

Creating a better tomorrow, today.

Jiva empowers smallholder farmers to adopt better practices, adapt to new conditions and grow their incomes.

What we do

At Jiva, we’re focused on solving  four critical challenges that farmers around the world face every day.

Finance

Jiva provides no cost advances for agricultural inputs through our mobile app. The advances allow farmers to buy better supplies and are repaid at harvest like buy now, pay later.

Supplies

Jiva farmers can purchase high-quality supplies through the e-commerce store on our app. Jiva delivers these supplies at no extra charge.

Grow

Our personalised, AI-powered advice engine delivers relevant, feasible advice to farmers right when they need it.

Sell

Jiva farmers arrange pickup of their harvest through the app. With Jiva, farmers can also cross-check prices and see cost breakdowns.

What sets us apart

Technology with a deep rooted human centered purpose.

Community Engagement, Not Replacement

Jiva partners with rural entrepreneurs across the supply chain, we don't replace them. These actors bridge technology gaps and build trust with farmers, and their expertise helps us to evolve and tailor our solutions.

Human-Technology Hybrid

Jiva operates a hybrid model that preserves key face-to-face interactions while uplifting inefficient and unfair processes with new technologies. This model accelerates adoption, increases feedback and builds trust.

Personalisation at Scale

Jiva leverages climate data, remote sensing, computer vision and other technologies to design and deliver personalised and relevant advice to each and every farmer on our platform, right when they need it.

Closed-Loop Model

Jiva extends advances to farmers, who then repay via their harvests. This allows Jiva to "see the whole picture", which reduces risk, and enables us to service more farmers and pass on more value.

Agricultural technology, or agri-tech for short, began with the industrial revolution, where machines were used to increase crop production and animal yield. Over the years, it has remained one of the greatest advancements in human history as an excellent development to cushion the teeming global population expected to reach 9.7 billion by 2050. Agricultural technology involves the direct application of machines, Artificial Intelligence, and all other forms of technology to agriculture and its allied fields for higher sustainability.
