Impact Terra

Impact Terra is a fast growing agricultural, financial and big-data technology company focused on social impact.  We believe social impact and financial return are two requirements for sustainability.

The world needs more and better food. A growing population, changing climate and low productivity of small-holder farmers are reasons for serious concern. Small-holder farmers are responsible for the largest share of global agricultural production. There are an estimated 900 million smallholder farmers globally, of whom 350 million live in Southeast Asia, and around 30 million in Myanmar. In most developing markets agriculture contributes significantly to the economy while still being extremely inefficient. Supporting small-holders will lead to significant improvements to food production, the livelihoods of hundreds of millions of people and the economies of developing markets.

We use smartphones and our proprietary digital platform Golden Paddy to support millions of farmers, retailers, and other users in their daily business and information requirements. As Myanmar leapfrogged from no to full connectivity and nearly 100% smartphone use within 2.5 years, we believe the infrastructure is now available to deliver a solution. 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 small holder farmers to become more knowledgeable and independent

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