Junior Content Executive

IMPACT TERRA

Impact Terra is a fast growing agricultural, financial and big-data technology social enterprise. We offer a digital services platform for farmers and farming households. 

In most developing markets agriculture contributes significantly to the economy while still being extremely inefficient. In Myanmar, around 30 million smallholder farmers are responsible for a large share of the agricultural production,  yet, they rely on outdated and innefficient farming practices. Supporting smallholder farmers will lead to significant improvements in food production, the livelihoods of hundreds of millions of people and the economies of developing markets.

As Myanmar leapfrogged from no to full connectivity and 100% smartphone use within 2.5 years, we believe the infrastructure is now available to deliver a solution. Through our free digital platform Golden Paddy we support millions of farmers, retailers, and other users in their daily business and information requirements. Global trends such as increasing food demand, decreasing food production/yields and fast increasing smartphone connectivity make our model one for the future and one for significant impact.

Our vision: leverage connectivity to enable smallholder farmers to become more knowledgeable and independent

Our mission: support smallholder farmers and their households in improving their livelihoods and make food supply more secure and safe
