Laboremus partners with ADC, Rabobank to develop dairy industry

ADC, Rabobank Foundation and Laboremus Uganda are happy to announce a partnership to help Uganda’s dairy farmers and cooperatives grow. The three parties are signing an agreement today to bring Emata to even more dairy farmers and cooperatives in Uganda.

As part of the agreement, Rabobank Foundation will support the continuous development of the Emata solution. Moreover, ADC-supported cooperatives will get access, training and support for the Emata solution.

Emata makes managing a cooperative easy. The solution unravels administrative clutter, increases transparency and turns risky bulk cash transactions into safe one-click digital payments. On top of this, Emata provides greatly needed insight into daily operations. This helps farmers and cooperatives make better and more informed decisions.

Through Emata, ADC cooperatives will gather information about the productivity of their farmers, as well as understand which farmers are performing well and which require more training. Emata also facilitates communication between the cooperative and the farmers, and settle payments based on daily prices. As Emata can be operated offline, it even works in areas with fluctuating data connectivity.

“Laboremus is excited to partner with the Rabobank Foundation and ADC, two organizations that share our vision for the potential and future of the agricultural sector in Africa. Through smart use of both technology and field training, we believe that this partnership will build a foundation on which cooperatives and farmers can grow stronger, more efficient and prosperous,” says Bram van den Bosch, Managing Director of Laboremus.
