Arinifu is a technology company that aims to enhance farming in Kenya and Africa at large through technological innovation and making it accessible to both low and high-income farmers. To us, it’s all about solving interesting problems and delighting our customers. This is our guiding light.
Our vision is to enhance farmer output by providing access to new, affordable and efficient technologies.
We work with farmers to understand the challenges they face then tap into technology for solutions. At the end of it, we want them to receive better returns and ultimately better standards of life.
Arinifu’s pioneer product is the Smart Brooder. This is a revolutionary, farm assistance product that was inspired by the cry of farmers in bringing up chicks at the brooding stage where they are most susceptible to dying.
It, therefore, aims to bring Peace of mind in raising Chicks to chicken at an affordable price, without compromising on quality. We believe that profits shouldn’t be unreliable due inefficient production systems.
The Smart Brooder innovation enhances the entire brooding process by monitoring and controlling the brooding space while providing optimal growth conditions and using technology to convey recorded data. Our intention is to put wide smiles on all our farmers and some sweet profits in their pockets too. Farmers shouldn’t have to worry about waking up at night to check on chicks. They should be able to do this from their bed via their phone.
Our value proposition to you
- Reduced death rate with up to 98% livability rate within the brooding period
- Reduced feed required
- Increases growth/maturity rate in chicks.
- Reduced farming stress due to controlled heat and real-time SMS updates
- Environment conservation due to use of sustainable heat sources
- Reduced cost of supplemental/additional energy required to raise chicks
Poultry farming in Africa
Poultry farming is widely practised in Africa. Though mostly small-scale, commercial poultry farming is ever increasing to fulfill the nutrition demand in Africa. Hotels and other institutes constitute the major customers of poultry products. To maximize productivity, technology has been adopted by many farmers and is even termed as the fifth factor of production.
The Smart Brooder is one such technology and aims to make poultry farming easier but at the same time increase production efficiency.
Over-reliance on white collar jobs has played a key role in the rate of unemployment in Africa. The Smart Brooder aims to tackle this by encouraging the youth to join poultry farming to sustain their livelihoods.
As part of our sustainability plan, we hope to reduce reliance on Charcoal as a source of heat and encourage the use of infrared bulbs and gas burners with catalytic converters. These are highly efficient and have minimal effects on the environment.
