Modern technology combines with thoughtful mechanical engineering to produce the “Smart Tractor” to help African farmers increase crop cultivation.

Jehiel Oliver, CEO of Hello Tractor:  “There’s about 35 million small farmers in Nigeria, and 80 percent of that number, about 28 million, pay for off-farm labor [all] at the same time.

Hello Tractor: http://www.hellotractor.com/ provides Smart Tractors on demand for a modest rental fee from local owners ($75/hectare) dramatically improving land yields and adding to general prosperity.

Low cost, subsidized loans are provided to African entrepreneurs who want to provide local services.
