Stimulate the development of green agriculture using technological strength

SimpleCredit has been deeply involved in agricultural development and actively integrated into the agricultural asset industry chain. Relying on major agricultural material production companies such as animal feed and agricultural machinery, it provides services to customer groups including suppliers, producers, sales channels, retail stores, farmers, etc. As a result, SimpleCredit is preparing to fully play its experience and advantages in Internet financial services, especially in the aspect of promoting agriculture with science and technology, in order to facilitate the use of Internet technology in the production and help producers reduce carbon emissions in all aspects, such as production, sourcing and sales.
Based on practices over nearly three years, SimpleCredit has developed a distinctive financing business model for the agricultural supply chain. In this model, farmers, distributors, manufacturers and suppliers are placed in a closed-loop customer relationship. Using industrial credit data, SimpleCredit laid the foundations of financial services and transaction scenarios to solve the industry payment problem based on the financing needs of terminal farmers. In this way, upstream production companies can build an efficient cash flow, which further becomes a basis for production upgrades.
In the World Bank’s Green Agriculture Fund project, SimpleCredit will work with the Henan Agricultural Development Fund to help leading companies accelerate the application of new technologies to reduce carbon emissions, including platforms. forms of building management such as: product order management platform, financial channel management platform, and the core business. Once these platforms are completed, the front, middle and back end can be managed systematically online and personalize product sales for end consumers and the core business sales team will become available. Orders can be placed remotely with one click via the mobile app, the H5 page and the WEB. Increasing the efficiency of core businesses in terms of human resources and logistics will ultimately reduce the carbon emissions generated by transport caused by marketing. At the same time, the use of data makes the operation able to link to financial channels and perform paperless operations. Upstream and downstream core business customers can now manage funding from multiple channels on a single platform and select services based on the support services provided by the Henan Agricultural Development Fund.
Dr Wang Chuanguo, CEO of SimpleCredit, pointed out that SimpleCredit is extremely honored to be part of the Green Agriculture Fund project.
