Acumen Invests in SokoFresh to Reduce Post-Harvest Losses for Farmers

Acumen has invested in SokoFresh, which provides smallholder farmers in East Africa with cold-storage solutions and market access to reduce post-harvest losses and guarantee demand for produce. This is Acumen’s first new investment with its latest energy initiative, PEII+, which is designed to invest early-stage capital in energy businesses that are improving the livelihoods of smallholder farmers and micro-entrepreneurs in India, East Africa, and West Africa.
