Working together for an inclusive agri-SME

finance ecosystem

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. 

What's new?

Dr. Barbara Buchner, Global Managing Director of Climate Policy Initiative, talks about the climate finance gap for small-scale agriculture and how more climate finance can be directed towards  small farmers and agri-SMEs.
