The goal of the digital agriculture platform Shega Fre, which is based on a contract farming model, is to help farmers raise their yields, cut down on post-harvest losses, and boost their incomes. Agricultural inputs on credit, agricultural insurance, and access to commercial markets are all part of Shega Fre’s contract farming solution.

The platform will simplify the agriculture value chain by directly connecting smallholder farmers to commercial markets using a contract farming model that guarantees access to market and access to inputs for farmers.

Shega Fre currently operates in various cities across the capital and in the outskirts of Addis Ababa.
