Ogleji is a solution that empowers farmers to work and communicate in new and innovative ways.
Connects smallholder Nigeria farmers with urban and export markets via the mobile app-enabled marketplace.
Ogleji negotiates with buyers to create demand and assures quality through its network of agents. This motivates smallholder farmers to move beyond subsistence and into cash crops that can feed Africa and the world.
Rural and remote farmers lack access to market urban or export markets and thus either are exploited by middlemen or have little motivation to grow cash crops. Farm inputs that might increase crop yield are costly, as they live on less than $2 a day.

Ogleji offers value to both suppliers and buyers. The farmers are motivated to grow crops for guaranteed buyers at favorable market prices.
Ogleji Agents further elevate product quality and crop yields through training on good agricultural practices and discounts on inputs. Buyers access a new source of supply, primarily organic, to meet growing urban and international demand. They receive high-quality produce, supply chain transparency, and pre-negotiated prices that cushion them from price fluctuations.

Ogleji empowers Nigeria’s farmers with price transparency and market access

For many low-volume Nigerian farmers, the only source of information about the market rate for crops comes from the very people who are trying to buy them. The lack of pricing transparency means that farmers don’t always get the best deal. Ogleji seeks to solve this by providing up-to-date market prices via Ogleji, direct to farmers. It also connects farmers with buyers directly, cutting out the middlemen.

In addition to pricing information and group selling, Ogleji has also developed a group buying tool, allowing farmers to pool resources to negotiate better prices for things like fertilizer.

Transactions are all handled by Ogleji’s integrated payment system — drawing on mobile payment technology — but can also be plugged into people’s bank accounts (if they have one). When an order is placed through Ogleji, the farmer takes his or her produce to the designated collection point and sends a message to confirm the product has been delivered. The buyer then collects the produce and verifies the quantity and quality by sending a message to Ogleji. Once that’s been confirmed and the order has been fulfilled, the money is released by Ogleji to the farmer’s account. With larger orders where multiple farmers are involved, the money is distributed between different accounts.
