BusinessFood security - the greatest financing opportunity!
Addressing the USD 65 billion annual agri-financing gap cannot wait.
Yes, we know. Agri-finance is difficult, can be risky, and there are far easier sectors to finance. But that’s not the entire story. Most value chains are split in the middle, with risk concentrated at pre-harvest stage. Move up-chain and agri-financing becomes a viable, sustainable and profitable line of business.
We see food security as a civic responsibility shared by all. Supporting agri-businesses like traders, exporters and processors directly contributes to solving the gap. Help these businesses grow, and the demand-pull effect will quickly and positively impact agri-producers and smallholders.
