A global network advancing inclusive access to finance for SMEs in the agriculture sector.
Small and medium-sized enterprises in agriculture often struggle to access the appropriate capital they need for their businesses to thrive. They operate in a fragmented financial landscape, where SMEs, the institutions that finance them and other actors that can help them flourish do not effectively communicate or coordinate efforts with each other. The Smallholder and Agri-SME Finance and Investment Network (SAFIN) builds bridges between these different actors.
