Our Response to COVID-19

Cycle Connect is supporting rural communities at this time through creating access to information, transportation, and food. See some of the steps we're taking below and see our full response here.

Preventing Hunger for Rural Families

Rural families are already struggling to put food on the table. Many have already run out of their seeds and urgently need access to seeds to ensure they can feed their family through COVID-19.

Communicating Critical Information

We're developing a support call center to communicate out crucial information about COVID-19 to rural families living in the most remote areas where people are cut off from information.

Providing Transport for Medical Workers

Bicycles have become more important than ever in ensuring timely medical access. Our team is moving fast to get more bicycles into the hands of healthcare workers to enable them to show up to the frontlines.

WHAT WE DO

Cycle Connect increases income for smallholder farmers in East Africa through productive asset financing and training.

Our Model →

Asset Financing

When selecting our assets, we only choose tools that will help farmers increase income through added efficiencies. By testing every product to measure its impact, we can assess whether it will be a worthwhile investment for a farmer.

Last Mile Access

Cycle Connect is committed to going the last mile to ensure farmers have the opportunity to invest in their future and achieve their dreams. We go the distance to reach our clients where they are, whether it's 5 miles or 100 miles.

Low Barrier Loan Terms
