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?

Yuri Soares tells SAFIN about why IDB joined the network, and what is shaping the future of agricultural finance in Latin America and the Caribbean.
