ReelFruit, a Nigerian dry fruit processing company and Ghana’s Complete Farmer have each won $50,000 at the Village Capital Agriculture Africa Accelerator Program.

In September last year, ReelFruit and Complete Farmer were named among the nine African agritech startups that will participate in the Village Capital Agriculture Africa Accelerator Program.

Agriculture Africa 2019 is a Village Capital initiative that supports solutions that improve outcomes for small farmers and address food security issues and run in partnership with Small Foundation and Ceniarth which committed $50,000 to top two African startups-ReelFruit and Complete Farmer.

“I’m thrilled about the Africa Agriculture 2019 program and the fact we had representation from Zambia for the first time, a Senegalese company representing Francophone Africa, and nine ventures from seven countries,” said Adedana Ashebir, regional manager for Africa at Village Capital.

“I’m especially proud of ReelFruit and Complete Farmer who consistently impressed their colleagues throughout the peer due diligence process.”
