Pollen enables farmers to carry out financial transactions by providing a blockchain-based payment infrastructure and affordable micro-loans, offering an alternative to traditional cash-based systems. The model decentralizes the village banking process, letting farming cooperatives set-up and manage their own digital banks. It provides impactful opportunities for farmers to access bundled agribusiness services, discounted farming inputs, crop price indexes, livestock service and weather forecasts.
