The global network advancing inclusive agri-SME finance
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.
Why do some programmes run by organizations that provide financial/non-financial support to agri-SMEs make little to no difference? The Argidius Foundation shared their learnings on how such organizations can boost their impact on agri-SME growth and access to finance.
