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.
Jiva provides low cost loans through our mobile app. The loans allow farmers to buy better supplies and are repaid at harvest.
Jiva farmers can purchase high-quality supplies through the e-commerce store on our app. Jiva delivers these supplies at no extra charge.
Our personalised, AI-powered advice engine delivers relevant, feasible advice to farmers right when they need it.
Jiva farmers arrange pickup of their harvest through the app. With Jiva, farmers can also cross-check prices and see cost breakdowns.
Are farmers an endangered species?
There are 500 million smallholder farmers worldwide who produce up to 70% of the world’s food. Yet, globally we’re seeing a decline in the overall number of farmers.
Farmer Hasri: the Old and the New

“I’m very excited to follow Jiva’s nudges, which are different from my usual practices. I feel that Jiva is looking out for us and bringing new life to farmers”
“I am definitely doing better at this point in the crop cycle compared to the previous season. I am using better quality seeds and have learnt proper fertilisation techniques”
