Our Impact

Blooom is designed to achieve sustainable, systemic change.

Agriculture is a complex environment, where only a broad coalition of players can achieve sustainable impact.

This is why we act as ecosystem integrators. We develop technology that removes the barriers between smallholders and other market actors, while benefiting every stakeholder and providing incentives for all to deliver pro-poor outcomes.

How We Create Change

Increasing incomes
through inclusive markets

The combination of our technology and last mile Blooom Entrepreneur network makes it convenient, predictable and financially attractive for companies to transact with smallholders.

Our risk assessment and the data that we gather and maintain on farms help smallholders access credit and insurance.

Our smart farming recommendations, combined with access to high quality, sustainable inputs, enable farmers to increase yields sustainably, while mitigating risks.

Our platform makes inputs and logistics not only more accessible, but also more affordable, through aggregating smallholder demand and creating economies of scale.

At the same time, we give farmers direct access to buyers, and enable them to sell ahead of time. These help them get fair prices and minimize food waste, which result in further income boosts.

Improving food security

We increase the general business resilience of small farms by providing risk mitigation advice, and by helping farmers access credit and insurance. These in turn enable them to purchase high quality, sustainable inputs, available through our platform.

The use of climate-friendly inputs combined with our sustainable best practice recommendations improve farms’ climate resilience. They also decrease pesticide residue and increase nutrient content.

Finally, improved access to markets and logistics, and the optimization of buyers’ supply chains reduce food waste, and ensure that smallholders can not only grow larger volumes of healthy food, but also that their harvests reach urban consumers.

Improving ecosystem health
through climate-smart farming

Improving ecosystem health through climate-smart farming

In addition to helping farmers access, afford and use sustainable inputs and implement sustainable best practices, Blooom also recommends crops and crop mixes that restore soil health and increase the retention of soil organic carbon.

Combining detailed digital soil maps with periodic soil testing, our platform enables sustainable soil management with precision.

We aggregate and analyze our data on weather, soil quality, input use, agricultural practices and yields to advance the science of climate-smart agriculture.

We provide additional incentives for smallholders to adopt sustainable best pracices by connecting them to organic and fairtrade premium markets.

Last but not least, we measure and track carbon offset and emission reduction throughout the entire food value chain.

Women

We reach out directly to women-led rural groups and provide them training with our platform. Our goal is to ensure that the benefits of Blooom are accessible for women, and that communities see women as having equal rights and aptitudes to not only use the platform, but also to manage their farms.

Youth

Youth are a key constituency in our model, both because young farmers are generally more receptive to technological solutions, and because they are the most likely to possess the drive and the education that is required to join our network as Blooom entrepreneurs.

It is a central part of our mission to make farming attractive for young people again, and help farmers’ children stay on their families’ lands.
