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?

From 05 to 07 October 2021, the SAFIN Network hosted its fifth Annual Plenary Meeting fully virtually. Over the three-day event, more than 140 participants representing institutions from across the globe convened to share experiences and lessons for the present and future of agri-SME finance.
