In 2013, Juhudi Kilimo decided to create Juhudi Labs, an entity dedicated to discovering, testing and scaling new financial and agricultural products, services and processes. In Juhudi Labs we explore future ideas to improve our business. We also provide support to companies serving Kenya’s rural smallholder farmers.
Juhudi Labs currently comprises four programs: the Financial Product Program, the Clean Energy Program, the Startup Residency Program, and the Field Research Program. The underlying assumption of our Juhudi Labs programs is that the products and services they develop are relevant and beneficial to smallholder farmers, helping farming businesses grow and creating a positive impact in farmers’ lives and communities.
