Agri-Business Capital (ABC) Fund
Investing in smallholder farmers and small-to-medium sized rural agribusinesses (SMEs) in developing countries to support sustainable and inclusive agricultural value chains.
In many developing countries, smallholder farmers and rural SMEs are the backbone of the economy and the main producers of food. They have high potential for growth and can drive social development for their communities and countries.
However, farmers and rural SMEs often lack the capital to grow and reach that potential.
HARNESSING THE POTENTIAL OF SMALLHOLDER FARMERS
The ABC Fund offers a set of financial products, including loans and equity, specifically tailored to the needs of smallholder farmers and agri-SMEs.
To reach them most effectively, these products are made available either directly to farmers’ organizations and SMEs, or indirectly via financial institutions.
Financial constraints are only some of the problems faced by smallholders and SMEs.
To ensure the success of its investments, the ABC Fund helps investees resolve issues such as lack of capacity through its Technical Assistance Facility (TAF).
