Dimitra’s Technologies to Empower SwissContact Bolivia

April 20th, 2022

BELIZE CITY, BELIZE — Dimitra Incorporated, a global Agtech company on a mission to make its technologies available to smallholder farmers globally, is thrilled to work with SwissContact Bolivia, a non-profit organization promoting inclusive economic, social and ecological development.

SwissContact is employing Dimitra’s technologies to help improve Bolivia’s Inclusive Market Project and accelerate farmers’ sustainable development in environmental, economic, and social factors. Dimitra will make its application available, including artificial intelligence, machine learning, and satellite images for farmers already served by projects carried out by SwissContact in Bolivia.

SwissContact has been executing projects in Bolivia since 1988 and knows the reality and needs of Bolivian farmers. Bolivia ranks last among neighboring countries regarding agricultural yields, diversification, or production value. As a result, agriculture has fallen into a severe crisis in the East and the West. Together, Dimitra and SwissContact will combat this by implementing technology in more crops and finding a long-term method to finance the project.

Dimitra will aid SwissContact in influencing the intensification of agroecological agriculture, the use and conscious consumption of resources and products, and the social inclusion of the vulnerable population of agri-food systems.

“Working with SwissContact Bolivia is a great honor for Dimitra as we share the same mission of supporting small producers to produce more and better, helping them to overcome poverty,” says Diego Costa, Dimitra Director of Latin America.

Armando, Dimitra’s Nacional Partner, mentions that “having signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Swisscontact is of utmost importance to Dimitra, since this institution works with strategic partners in different departments of Bolivia to support small farmers in a variety of crops. It’s a great opportunity for Dimitra to implement advanced technology and at the same time it’s a satisfying challenge to be able to contribute to the improvement and development of Bolivia’s crops and small farmers.”
