Indonesia, as an agrarian country, relies on the agricultural industry for its economic growth, but ironically 78% of active household farmers in Indonesia do not meet bank capital requirements.
Not to mention the challenges of the agricultural sector in the form of penetration of interconnections with technology to create a sustainable ecosystem, reduced regeneration of active farmers whose 65% are now over 60 years old, and the rising unemployment rate in rural areas, causing a gap of 2x than in cities. With this situation, Indonesia’s dream of becoming the world’s food barn in 2045 is very difficult to realize without change.
We believe that to answer these challenges, we need to create opportunities so that small and medium-sized farmers can develop their businesses and implement their ideas together with efforts to foster public confidence in the agricultural sector.
CROWDE is an agriculture-focused financial technology that empowers farmers across Indonesia with technology and capital. Thousands of farmers and investors across Indonesia have already put their trust in us to accomplish what has not been done before: a farmer-friendly financing ecosystem that put in touch investors seeking attractive returns with farmers that are looking for capital to grow, create employment and support local communities.
At CROWDE, we only do agriculture and do it well: we understand how to assess agri-project financing and manage risks pertaining to agriculture. Beyond connecting investors and farmers we also integrate the entire agriculture ecosystem from suppliers to customers through technology.
Our investors and farmers have influenced the core of our mission, they are both highly driven individuals who seek to better their own future, this has always inspired us and we look to change Indonesia with this mission in mind.
Together with CROWDE, we can achieve an inclusive increase in living standards and economic growth in Indonesia. Start cultivating kindness, now.
