Shamba ReFi

Farmers have a critical role to play in the fight against climate change through regenerative agriculture. We are building a solution to manage ecological credits and create new digital assets for farmers across the globe. Our solution aims to unlock new financing for farming communities by creating digital assets in the form of on-chain ecological credits. We help communities to create these products and facilitate financial providers access to these digital assets as collateral for loans.

How It Works

  • Shamba works with farming communities to create ecological credits through capturing evidence of regenerative agriculture practices through data provided by the Shamba oracle.

  • These ecological credits are created, sold and retired on a public ledger specialized in ecological credits.

  • The ecological credits are a digital asset that can be used as collateral by communities and liquidated.

  • The Shamba ReFi platform manages these digital assets for farming communities.

  • The Shamba ReFi platform facilitates the collateralization of these assets by financial lenders to secure loans to the farming communities that own these assets

  • The Shamba ReFi platform also facilitates the liquidation of these assets in the case that the collateral needs to be liquidated.

  • Both farming communities and their appointed financial service providers can use the Shamba ReFi platform to get transparent access to the state of the communities’ digital assets on-chain.
