Welcome to FarmInvest Tech
FarmInvest is an Farm-Tech platform with innovative financing model and integrated supply chain solution that connects farmers with access to finance and markets. We enable any individual or institutions to fund farming and agriculture, support farmers with knowledge and training and provide market access for the farmers' produce.
FarmInvest empowers farmer and small/micro Farm entrepreneurs by providing access to capital through connecting them with farm investors, training on best farming techniques, sales of farm produce to boost the quality and quantity of their farm production and also provide a healthy return after harvest for both farmer and Investor.
We are a team of passionate men and women, who have years of experience in the Agriculture, Finance and Technology sector. Our common goal is to find ways to create positive impact on rural farmers, contribute to the growth of food production, improve food security in Uganda, and to ensure more investment in the Farming sector to enable us to feed the growing population of Uganda and beyond.
Each fund has evidence in the form of a ‘Farm funding Certificate” or a “Certificate of ownership” sent to them through email, which also explains the ownership of the asset and FarmInvest’s responsibility as an asset manager. In addition, an invoice will be issued right away in an individual’s/organization’s email after payment has been made. For every transaction through a cheque, a money receipt is provided to the issuer along with all other documents mentioned above.
Once you have registered and funded a farm, you will have access to your FarmInvest profile dashboard which is built to give Farm Funders periodic updates; we send updates for farm cycles which are 6 months and less and we can send monthly updates for farm cycles which exceed 6 months. Farm updates are written reports, pictures and videos showing the progress being made at different stages of the farm cycle.
Depending on the farm you select, the cycle can run from 4 months to up to 12 months. At the end of the farm cycle FarmInvest facilitates the sale of the livestock/crop and give you your return within the stipulated time as mentioned in the certificate.
Return on fund is based on a profit-sharing criterion and will depend on the farm you are funding.
The initial funded amount and return after sales of the produce will be paid into the account details provided by you when you register your profile. You can click on 'edit profile' on your dashboard to update your bank details and other information.
We have enlisted, verified and experienced farmers till now who are experienced and trained farmers for crops and cattle rearing,, poultry and crop production who will look after your funded farms under FarmInvest’s supervision. We will continue to add more trained and verified farmers in our network to ensure that your fund is safe and earns a healthy return.
You as an individual or organization can join through our website by completing the registration using your Gmail/Facebook account or can register directly at FarmInvest office.
After you have signed up on our website to create your own personalised FarmInvest profile, you can then select a farm of choice to fund. You invest in a farm, pay the funding amount and at the end of the stipulated farm cycle, you will receive a percentage of the profit after the sales of produce and also your initial investment capital.
First you will receive a Money Receipt or Invoice as soon as the payment is made followed by a ‘Farm investing Certificate” or a “Certificate of ownership” email within the following weeks which acknowledges the receipt of funding of the farm, the invoice, the farm cycle tenure and the end date of your farm cycle. On a periodic basis, you will receive farm updates which keeps you abreast of all activities on your farm, from the beginning to the end of the farm cycle. You can also get your farm updates by logging into FarmInvest and visiting your “My Profile” dashboard.
