Crowdfunding for Somali Nomads

  1. 1. Mohamed Jimale | Founder | Ari.farm CROWDFUNDING FOR SOMALI NOMADS
  2. 2. Grew up as a nomad in Somalia Studied IT in India Came to Sweden as a refugee Worked for the UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR) Founded Ari.farm in 2016 ABOUT ME
  3. 3. In 2016 a severe drought hit Somalia and neighbouring countries. Many nomads moved to the cities as they couldn’t sustain their lives. WHY I GOT INVOLVED?
  4. 4. Those who lost their animals moved to the cities and became internally displaced persons/refugees (IDPs) as they lack skills for employment. PROBLEM #1
  5. 5. Those who still have animals live in poverty half of the year due to problems in the local livestock market. PROBLEM #2
  6. 6. Local traders avoid buying animals during dry seasons as they don’t have the capital & infrastructure to hold animals. THIS IS WHY Winter Spring Summer Autumn Buy Sell Buy Sell
  7. 7. The local livestock trading is controlled by many small traders and big exporters. Farmers Exporters Local Market Int Market City Traders Village Traders HOW THE MARKET WORKS
  8. 8. We can’t stop droughts but we can solve the market problems!
  9. 9. Why not enable nomads to sell their animals over the Internet? LET’S GO ONLINE
  10. 10. A platform that enables anyone to become an online livestock trader where you can buy, own & sell animals through an app & website. THE SOLUTION
  11. 11. We employ former nomads who buy animals from other nomads, maintain them at our own farms & sell them for the digital owners. HOW IT WORKS
  12. 12. We are getting capital from our digital livestock traders. We have built our own infrastructure and use tech to expand our reach and make our operations efficient. Farmers Exporters Local Market Int Market Ari.farm + Global Investors WHAT MAKES US DIFFERENT?
  13. 13. It is a profitable investment that supports local farmers and creates jobs. It is also fun! Where else can you own a goat OR a camel? WHY IT WORKS
  14. 14. 80% of Africa’s population owns livestock. There are 20 million full time livestock farmers in East Africa. 40% of Somalia’s economy is based on livestock. HOW IMPORTANT IS IT?
  15. 15. We are a team of former nomads and techies.
