Econet Wireless Zimbabwe ( EWZ)'s EcoFarmer has partnered Mercy Corps and the Zimbabwe Farmers Union (ZFU), to help achieve rural food security and boost productivity by raising mobile literacy among rural women farmers through practical training and on-the-ground knowledge transfer.

The training, which has so far been carried out in Manicaland and Mashonaland Central, is designed to empower rural farmers to make full use of their mobile phones to access critical services to raise productivity, according to Dr Jimmy Shindi, a senior Econet executive.
