The impact team works to capture the effectiveness of iFarmer services, evaluate the impact created and identify any gaps based on the first-hand insights of the farmers. Through achieving this goal, iFarmer can align the services offered, to cater to the needs of the key stakeholders – the farmers. Through our comprehensive impact framework, our team of changemakers work towards achieving an impact goal and enable all the teams to be driven by the impact their work can have on farmers.
iFarmer being an impact driven company, has a strong impact mandate that is measured and evaluated rigorously throughout the year. Our quarterly qualitative research and regular monitoring also help us evaluate the outcome of our services and track the changes and progress of financial condition and improvements in the livelihoods of our farmers.
Our theory of change is based on the idea that by providing smallholder farmers access to low-cost finance, high-quality inputs, agronomic advisory, and a direct access to the forward market, we should be able to ensure higher profits, better quality yields, and sustainable farming practices for farmers- with the goal of improving their livelihoods, enabling them to become more resilient and help them achieve the optimum output of farming in the long run.
