CASE STUDY: Agricultural Livelihoods

The Problem

A multinational agribusiness with $14 billion annual turnover wanted an affordable and scalable way to train farmers, increase sales and improve product usage.

Our Solution

Arifu digitized the agribusiness’s traditional in-person training and product information dissemination which reduced their cost of delivery from $20 to $1 per farmer. We then engaged 250,000 farmers over interactive SMS to help improve their good agricultural practices.

In the first pilot with 5000 Kenyan farmers, we:

  • Helped farmers improve 21 categories of behavior related to good agricultural practice.
  • Increased farmer yield by 55%
  • Increased income by acre by $187
  • 0.6 more transactions

CASE STUDY: Financial Inclusion

The Problem

A digital financial service provider wanted to increase uptake and usage of a new savings and borrowing product among rural populations.

Our Solution

Arifu designed financial literacy and product education for 200 brand ambassadors and 3,000 rural customers, generating strong results on savings and loan behavior. We also learned from variations in content that the use of narratives and a personified digital advisor deepen the engagement.

  • 5.5 days repayment of digital credit
  • $2 larger running balance
  • $0.50 larger digital loans requested
  • 0.6 more transactions
