Fewer than 600 million people remain in extreme poverty. The last mile is digital.

Be a Part of It.  

Meet Melisa, Grameen Community Agent, and Edna, Philippine coconut farmer.

When Melisa registered Edna for Grameen's Digital Farm Development Plan back in October 2016, she knew it would connect the advantages of precision farming to Edna’s small five-hectare plot. What did neither know? Six months later, an early warning system would help save Edna’s farm from a pest outbreak that destroyed 644,000 coconut trees on Mindinao island where Edna lives. Edna’s Story

I’m so happy that this (opportunity) came. It really helps the farmers. I see the result and impact to the farmers. It gives something good to them.

Meet Jenny, Grameen Community Agent.

Also, entrepreneur, caregiver, mother and wife.

People in Jenny’s community rely on her for life’s essentials. Her sari-sari shop—the neighborhood convenience store—is more than a place to buy canned goods and cooking oil, it’s where everyone meets to catch with each other and the latest news. And now, because Jenny is a trained financial services agent and access point, she saves women from having to make expensive, long and often treacherous trips to the city to pay bills, borrow money or get government services. Now they have more time and money to spend on their family’s needs.

Becoming a Grameen Community Agent isn’t just helping Jenny help her community, it is helping her become a better entrepreneur. Jenny’s Story

I have this one fish vendor. I find him funny because every time he passes by to pay his family’s bill, he gives me a thumbs up. According to him, I am a genius for setting up this service in the community because it is very convenient for him.
