    Tulaa was incubated inside of Esoko, an award-winning tech company that pioneered the use of mobile technology to deliver vital information to smallholder farmers. Following a successful spin-off in 2017, Tulaa is now expanding quickly in Kenya.

    We build and deploy technology to level the playing field for buyers and sellers by lowering the cost and risk of transacting with smallholder farmers. Through our platform, farmers can access financial services, discounted agricultural inputs, information and markets for their crops, all via their feature phone. Our vision is to become the leading virtual marketplace for rural buyers and sellers in Africa.
