About Us

Winner of the 2023 SDG Digital Game Changers Award in the People Category, issued by the International Telecommunication Union (ITU), Tech Herfrica  is a social impact organization that is enabling wealth creation and breaking the cycle of poverty for women and girls in rural African communities through digital and financial inclusion.

By providing farmers and traders, especially women, in rural Africa with the information, digital tools, digital and financial literacy training, and other resources they need to enhance their farming and business activities and sell more of their products at competitive market prices, we are reducing poverty, reducing food waste, contributing to food security, promoting social inclusion, and advancing digital equity.

In order to achieve digital equity for all, we are striving to close the digital divide that exists for women in rural areas and integrate women-led businesses in rural communities into the digital economy. By 2030, we aim to reach 10 million African women and girls.

Due to the ongoing digital divide, millions of female farmers and traders across the continent are unable to access essential information on market prices, new markets, weather forecasts, agricultural methods, governmental policies, etc. As a result, they are unable to plan properly, make informed decisions, or adjust to changing circumstances, which leaves them trapped in a cycle of poverty.

With our innovative approach, we have connected the key elements of digital and financial inclusion to economic prosperity for beneficiaries. Our work has increased digital and financial knowledge and skills for over 80% of our beneficiaries and improved their income by 56% on average.

In addition to co-creating an e-commerce solution, herlocalmarket, that connects rural female farmers and traders to local and international buyers so that they can sell more of their products at fair prices, leading to reduced income inequalities and reduced food waste, we provide access to local technology for farmers and traders to increase production as well as conduct digital financial literacy training in indigenous languages for women and girls in rural communities so that they are equipped with the knowledge and skills required to adopt new technologies and access financial services.

We were passing through a village in Nigeria when we stopped by to buy fresh farm produce from a seller along the road. Our purchase of about 80,000 naira (100 USD) made the seller cry. Watch our story to find out more.
