Category: iCow Blog

iCow is generating  a new kind of farmer, we've named this farmer the "Urbal" farmer.

Sitting in her office in Nairobi city, Susan, is confident that her livestock investment is under good hands even though her farm is over 140km away. Susan is the first of a new kind of urban/rural farmer we are seeing through the iCow customer care center, which handles the back end systems of iCow, thanks to the Indigo Trust.
