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.
The market of business development services, also known as Enterprise Support Organizations, has grown significantly in the last decade, with more organizations providing technical, financial, and capacity-building support to agri-SMEs.
