African Changemaker

Alloysius Attah

Attah is a Ghanaian agtech entrepreneur passionate about helping African farmers grow their wealth.

Having experienced firsthand the challenges faced by smallholder farmers in Africa while growing up in Ghana, Attah helped co-found Farmerline Group in 2013. Farmerline works with agribusinesses to empower smallholder farmers in Africa via mobile technology. These shop owners, usually the first point of knowledge for the farmers, are used by Farmerline to distribute educational material.


The partnering shops use the startup’s Mergdata, a proprietary AI technology platform for supply chain intelligence, to digitize the farmers they serve and to generate the data the agritech needs to predict the demand for farm supplies. Under Attah’s leadership, Farmerline has grown into a successful enterprise, working with over 200,000 farmers across Africa. The company has won several awards and recognition for its innovative approach to agriculture and technology. On his part, Attah has been recognized as a Forbes 30 Under 30 honoree and a World Economic Forum Young Global Leader, among other accolades.
