“MUIIS is one of the projects under Mercy Corps Uganda’s AgriFin Mobile program that promotes the increased use of ICT and digital services among the rural communities. Through this project, over 190 Farmer Based Organizations (FBOs) registered under the MUIIS project have been instructed on digital financial and mobile money platforms. The provision of mobile phone based weather alerts, agronomic tips and drought insurance has promoted rural financing, eExtension and access to rapid agricultural advisory services among small scale farmers which are key in Mercy Corps Uganda’s AgriFin Mobile program.”
