What we do

Jiva is building a suite of applications, products, and services to digitize the rural supply chain and bring rural farming into the future.

Jiva partners with both farmers and supply chain stakeholders from the planning stage to post-harvest, offering four key services:

  • Microfinance: Jiva extends low-cost, digital credit via our farmer application, with no obligation to repay until after harvest
  • E-commerce: Farmers use their credit to purchase high-quality farm supplies from Jiva’s in-app store; Jiva delivers to the farmer’s doorstep at no extra charge
  • Advisory: Jiva’s personalized, AI-powered advisory platform delivers feasible, engaging, and impactful agronomic advice; the “Ask Jiva” feature allows farmers to speak with live experts whenever they need assistance
  • Harvest Purchase: Once the farmer schedules their desired pickup date via the app, Jiva provides honest scales, moisture meters, and transparent prices, so farmers always know they are getting paid fairly for their crops

Together these services address critical farmer needs and create efficiencies in the rural supply chain, unlocking substantial value for farmers, their families, and their communities.

Why we do it

525 million smallholder farmers grow 70% of the world’s food, yet are among the poorest and most underserved communities on earth. Moreover, rural farmers are some of the most vulnerable to the shifting conditions that result from climate change.

At Jiva, we know that increasing farmer yields, incomes, and access to information with modern technology will preserve smallholder livelihoods and strengthen their resiliency in a rapidly changing world.

We are passionate about our purpose to uplift the lives of our farmers. Each day we have the opportunity to build relationships with farmers and their families, design for their specific needs, and introduce technological solutions where none existed before.

Since the launch of our digital supply chain and advisory services in Indonesia in late 2020, we have grown to a community of tens of thousands of farmers and local stakeholders, extending hundreds of thousands of dollars in credit and purchasing millions of kilograms of harvest.

We are looking for exceptional engineering, product, and design talent to fuel our next phase of growth.
