Our story

2017
Emata saw the light of day!

We started Emata because we were convinced that we could leverage the technologies, big data capabilities and innovative business modelling we had built with Laboremus Uganda.

Our goal is to solve some of the main challenges that hold back the flow of agricultural financing in Africa today.
2018
We welcomed UNCDF as our first funding partner. We also launched our first MVP and pilot with three dairy cooperatives in southwestern Uganda.
2019
Rabobank Foundation, NORAD and FSDU joined as funding partners. We successfully developed a Proof of Concept for our alternative credit scoring model and lending technology.
2020
Emata became its own company. We also launched our second MVP and started piloting with two dairy cooperatives in the Central region.
