To elevate the quality of life for rural smallholder farmers and enterprises by providing wealth creating financial solutions for agribusiness
Asset Financing & Insurance
Unlike traditional microfinance, which primarily provides loans for working capital to informal businesses, we finance specific agricultural assets that offer immediate and sustainable income for farmers. As a way of promoting more innovation, we also provide startup capital for new agribusinesses.
These assets are insured to protect clients from harsh business losses. We reduce the farmer’s risk of further indebtedness by using the assets as a form of collateral in case of default.
We invest regularly in startups and we work diligently to link our clients to other major players in their market. This helps to develop the networks and opportunities for all of our clients in any given area.
This comprehensive approach creates long-term gains in productivity and promotes local engines of economic growth that help support the community as a whole.
