Background and context

Hello Tractor connects tractor owners to smallholder farmers through an IoT digital solution that supports improved management of tractor businesses, ensuring tractor owner success, while connecting farmers to affordable services. Our solution begins with a low-cost hardware monitoring device that can be installed on any tractor or combine, connecting it to the cloud for remote data tracking and analytics. By expanding tractors’ serviceable geography, we enable owners to grow their business, providing employment opportunities for service providers and rural booking agents. By creating equitable access to tractor services, we enable smallholder farmers to earn more and grow more, improving livelihoods and food security for their families and communities.

Hello Tractor is the largest and fastest-growing tractor contracting network in the emerging markets, operating its technology in 20 countries across Africa and Asia. We have grown our contractor customer base to over 4,000 tractor owners who have provided services to 1.2Million smallholder farmers cultivating 3.1Million acres.

In 2022, we launched our innovative Pay-As-You-Go (PAYG) tractor financing and Hub products to further address the severe deficit of mechanized assets in these economies, unlocking low risk, low-cost tractor financing for rural, under-banked entrepreneurs servicing smallholder farmers. These products have resulted in exponential growth within our marketplace for smallholder farmers to access mechanization, farm inputs, and knowledge on improved agriculture methods.
