Agrikaab is a startup that enables anyone to invest in African agriculture from their smartphone. We are currently active in Somalia where we are letting our global community invest in agricultural projects.
The projects are maintained by our local team and partners.
We currently run projects in Somalia.
Agrikaab is founded by Mohamed Jimale, a former nomad who turned IT professional. Mohamed moved to Sweden 7 years ago where he worked for the UN and started Ari.farm (now Agrikaab). Today we are a team of 20 people working in Kenya and Somalia.
Agrikaab Ltd is registered with the Registrar of Companies in Nairobi, Kenya and in Somalia with the Ministry of Commerce and Industry in Mogadishu.
We employ a team of former nomads and farmers through our local company. They launch the projects and run the operations. In some cases, we partner with other companies to launch and run projects.
Due to strict regulation it is unfortunately difficult to ship animals between countries.

Our operations make several direct social impacts. 1. We create jobs for people who find work at our projects. They take care of the farms, the plants and animals, sell the produce and buy and sell animals. 2. We are making local communities self-reliant as we provide locally produced food that is more available and cheaper than the food that they import from neighboring countries. 3. We provide market to nomads who want to sell their animals to us. 4. Agriculture is big part of the economies of Somalia and Kenya. We are bringing international investment to this vital part of the economy. 5. We provide microloans for others in the agriculture sector.
Agriculture is the biggest employer in all of East African countries. In Somalia, agriculture represents 75% of the country's economy. About half of Somalia's population of 12 million are nomads whose only assets are livestock.
Our investors come from all continents from more than 50 countries
