Trust-based Farming Services: Cambodia
Over 80% of Cambodia's population are farmers. Most farms are run independently and have minimal funds or agricultural education, often meaning harvests are poor. To help change this, Japanese entrepreneur Kengo Kitaura launched AGRIBUDDY. The service uses a smartphone app to predict potential harvests, which can be used to apply for unsecured bank loans, while local partners provide materials and knowledge. Discover how a new agricultural service that relies on trust is spreading throughout Cambodia.
