Tigo Cash creates an eco-system of cashless payments for rice farmers in the Eastern and Volta regions

Since becoming the Mobile Money partner for the Visa Foundation funded ‘Rice Mobile Finance project partner, RiMiFin, Tigo Cash, has facilitated the transfer of about US$345,765 via electronic mobile money platform to over 1,800 smallholder rice farmers.

According to the local rice farmers in Asutuare, Weta and Kpong in the Eastern region and parts of the Volta region, Tigo Cash has made a significant contribution to their livelihoods because prior to the project in 2014, they were exclusively dependent on cash payments from aggregators and buyers. This posed serious challenges to their entire rice farming supply chain system as there were consistent delays in payments to the farmers.
