MSC provided technical assistance support to design and test a digital financial services ecosystem to digitize coffee value chains in Uganda. We conducted the project for MM4P, MTN, and Kyagalanyi Coffee Ltd. Kyagalanyi is one of the leading coffee factories in Uganda that deals with coffee purchasing, processing, and export. MSC, together with Kyagalanyi, MTN and other stakeholders digitized the coffee value chain payments for over 75% of their farmers.
As part of the project, MSC developed a bulk payments toolkit that helped different stakeholders in a range of agricultural value chains to plan and implement bulk payment digitization. The successful design and implementation of this project helped MM4P, MTN, and Yo! Uganda develop a strategy to digitize various agro-value chains, such as seed oil, tea, dairy, and maize, among others, in the country.
