Kenyan startup Kuza Biashara has beaten contenders at the World Summit Awards (WSA) to bag top prize in the Environment and Green Energy category.
The award recognises achievements of digital innovation that drive social impact around the world.
Kuza is a mobile first micro-learning platform offering youth, women and micro-entrepreneurs from informal communities opportunities to learn, connect and grow at scale “on their own terms and at their own convenience”.
The multi-facetted digital platform provides access to crop advisories, inputs, credit and market information on demand.
Under Kuza, a member of the rural community is chosen to become an “agri-entrepreneur” serving 200 farmers with packages of practices and agri-extension services via the portable digital kit.
