eProd offers a proven and affordable supply chain management platform designed to enable aggregators to manage large numbers of suppliers (farmers). Managing hundreds of farmers can be challenging, more so managing thousands of farmers and tens of value chains.

In addition, providing aggregators in the agricultural sector with tools to manage produce collection, manage farmer profiles & fields, make produce quality checks, and provide customers with enough information to confirm traceability has been lacking in the agricultural sector.

Our solution provides all this and goes a step further to provide aggregators with tools like loan management, and credit score profiles for farmers enabling them to give small-scale farmers access to finance, and support for expansion.

We are active in 21 African countries and over 30 different agricultural sectors.

Mozilla Common Voice is an initiative to help teach machines how real people speak. Voice is natural, voice is human. That’s why we’re excited about creating usable voice technology for our machines. But to create voice systems, developers need an extremely large amount of voice data. Most of the data used by large companies isn’t available to the majority of people. We think that stifles innovation. So we’ve launched Common Voice, a project to help make voice recognition open and accessible to everyone
