Hello Tractor and CTA launch partnership to support smallholder farmers access mechanization
Hello Tractor and the Technical Centre for Agricultural and Rural Cooperation ACP-EU (CTA) have announced the launch of a joint partnership project to increase smallholder farmers’ access to mechanization services and youth employment opportunities.
The partnership project will enable Hello Tractor to expand its services across Nigeria and Kenya over the next one year to connect 5,000 smallholder farmers to mechanization services, as well as to create jobs for youth as tractor operators and booking agents.
Best practices and lessons learned will be shared on implementing digital services for agricultural mechanization.
“We are delighted to partner with Hello Tractor in expanding its innovative digital platform to reach a large number of users that will contribute not only to modernizing smallholder agriculture and increasing productivity but also to attracting young people to agribusiness in Africa,” said Michael Hailu, Director of the CTA.
