About us – Ari.farm

We make a real social impact

We are a strong team with passion for social impact and technology

Ari.farm is a mission-driven startup that has developed an innovative online platform that enables anyone anywhere in the world to easily invest in agriculture in Africa. We enable our users to make money and real social impact through their smarpthone.

Our story

Ari.farm is founded by Mohamed M Jimale, who grew up as a nomad in Somalia where his family have been livestock farmers for generations. In 2010, he moved to Sweden as a refugee where he started other projects and worked for the UN. Before moving to Sweden, he studied IT.

In 2016, Somalia was hit by severe drought that has impacted the lives of many nomads (who account for half of Somalia’s population). Jimale wanted to do something. So he decided to combine his intimate connection to the nomads and his IT skills to build the most epic app that allows people from all over the world to crowdfund farms in Somalia and buy animals such as goats and sheep from the nomads.

Our mission is to create new generation of farmers, contribute to the food security of the region and create jobs. Our vision is to make the whole agriculture industry more efficient and prosperous with technology. In Somalia agriculture accounts for 75% of the country’s economy. Any investment and improvements in this sector will have profound impact in the lives of people and the local economy.
