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 no-cost advances for agricultural inputs. This allows farmers to buy better supplies they can repay at harvest. Buy now, pay later.
With Jiva, farmers can purchase high-quality supplies through the e-commerce store on our app. We deliver these supplies to them, no extra charge.
Our personalised, AI-powered advice engine delivers relevant, feasible advice to farmers — helping them produce better-quality crops and increased yield.
Jiva allows farmers to sell their crops with ease. Arrange pickup, cross-check prices, see cost breakdowns; all in one app.
UT Day: Getting to Know Our Rural Users through Remote Testing
Users should always be at the center of your design process. When users live in rural areas, getting to know them comes with its own challenges: logistical hurdles, time restrictions, resource limitations, and the list goes on. But this doesn’t mean you get a pass to neglect the process of learning their problems and needs. How do we do this at Jiva?
Ramadan bonding: How this holy month brings us closer to the farming community

How Can Agri-tech Help Farmers?
In the face of a growing population and food shortages caused by climate change, we need to produce more food and find ways to grow and distribute it more efficiently. With the growing demand for food products worldwide, Agri-tech startups are making it possible for farmers to increase their yields while maintaining healthy plants in less time and for less cost. In this post, we explore the benefits of some of the major agricultural technologies and modern farming techniques to help you put things into perspective.
