CoolCap was founded in 2017 by Roger Bird to change the lives of smallholder farmers. A leader in agricultural lending and international development, in banking for over 35 years, Roger has helped underserved farmers across the globe with projects funded by USAID, Asian Development Bank, Millennium Challenge Corporation, World Bank, and other organizations in both the public and private sector.

Roger’s solution for ending poverty for smallholders is to provide them with modern equipment, which not only ends daily drudgery but also improves crops. For every 10% rise in crop yields in sub-Saharan Africa, poverty drops 7%.

CoolCap has created a simple, scalable way to make this possible. They identify high-potential farmers through wholesale buyers, they only sell equipment that pays for itself through its use, and they offer a simple pay-as-you-go approach that makes sense. Their solution is unique because they use local market systems that already exist. They want a better life for smallholder farmers – one that supports their capabilities, their communities, and the markets they serve.
