Nigerian agri-tech startup UfarmX, which leverages blockchain technology to empower rural, unbanked and underserved smallholder farmers, has expanded to Senegal as it aims to reshape perceptions about agriculture, positioning it as an appealing, contemporary, and profitable career option for the younger generation.

At its heart, UfarmX is a “digital bridge, an enabler, and a catalyst within the African agricultural landscape”, said CEO Alexander Zanders.
