Working together for an inclusive agri-SME
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 fourth SAFIN Annual Plenary went virtual this year. Convening SAFIN network partners and leading practitioners from different parts of the agri-finance ecosystem, this year’s event included fifteen sessions led by over fifty speakers, eight virtual exhibition booths and a vibrant networking hall.
