We work with low-income smallholder farmers that are often outside the formal economy. There is limited to no data on these groups in most standard data repositories e.
g. demographic data, addresses, asset ownership / land title information; even telephone history is often non-existent. Consequently, it is extremely difficult for potential investors / entrepreneurs / partners to make smart, data-
driven business decisions when working in these areas. Fortunately, over the last several years of operations, Babban Gona has collected a significant amount of data on our farmer members.
We have deep roots in these communities and we know the farmers intimately well.
