Terms of service
Summary of service
Agrecourse is a technology-enabled agribusiness company that gives users the opportunity to partake in agriculture by funding smallholder farmers through our platform. Our aim is to improve the productivity and income of smallholder farmers. The people that provide these funds would usually select a farm they would like to support and we use these funds to acquire land, engage farmers, procure quality inputs, insure the farm and farm produce, complete a full farming cycle, sell harvests and then pay the Sponsors their outlay and profits from a successfully harvested farming cycle. We keep our Sponsors updated on farming activities during the farming cycle.
