Hello Tractor (USA, Nigeria)

Hello Tractor is a tractor sharing service targeted at marginalized farmers throughout sub-Saharan Africa. The platform utilizes much of the same technology as ZipCar (telematics, gps, cloud computing) but, as a social enterprise, focuses on addressing the unique challenges faced by small farmers, particularly women, in agrarian communities.

The World Bank states that there are only 8 tractors per 100Km2 of farmland in Africa versus a global average of 200! Our tractor co-share will allow for equitable access to these tractors and close the technology gap preventing African farmers from better utilizing their land resources and maximizing their farm incomes.
