Working together for an inclusive agri-SME
The Smallholder and Agri-SME Finance and Investment Network (SAFIN) is a partnership of actors that are committed to aligning their efforts to scale up access to financial services for agri-SMEs and for small commercial farms. We are financial institutions, philanthropic foundations, social lenders, technical assistance providers, farmers' organizations, and development finance organizations. From different vantage points, with different tools and entry points, each one of us works to bridge the investment gap in agriculture and food systems by financially empowering agri-SME and smallholder investors.
Like for many others in the agri-finance community, 2020 was a challenging year but also a year of learning for the SAFIN Network. Read about our achievements throughout the year in this report.
