About Cycle Connect:

Cycle Connect is a
socially-driven business that delivers products and services to rural farmers
in Uganda. We believe that distance should not be a barrier to opportunity and
that is why we work on serving last mile farmers. Millions of farmers
are financially excluded and yet need access to assets on credit. This is where
Cycle Connect delivers, as we specialize in offering productive assets on
financing plans, reaching the most last mile customers, and offering low
barrier loan terms built for farmers, enabling them to increase their income
and in turn propel their communities forward. We began our full-time operations
in 2014 and early-on pivoted to a blended enterprise and impact model. We have
a growing number of assets in our portfolio, including oxen and plough,
bicycles, motorcycles, grinding machines, and a rich pipeline for even more. To
date, we have worked with over 8,000 farmers across two different branches and
backed up by 40 team members. We are venturing through an exciting time of
rapid growth and scale throughout Uganda and are therefore looking to expand
our team.
