AgriFI, the Agriculture Financing Initiative
EU funded impact investments in sustainble agriculture
AgriFI, the EU-funded Agriculture Financing Initiative, is a blending facility aiming to unlock, accelerate & leverage investments with a value chain approach in developing countries, focusing on smallholder's inclusiveness and/or agri-business MSMEs.
EDFI AgriFI’s mandate is to empower smallholder's inclusiveness and/or the small-scale agri-business in developing countries. By providing diversified financing instruments meeting smallholder farmers’ needs, the impact-first facility is committed to support the increase of yields at affordable rates and help raise farmer incomes. The COVID-19 pandemic has amplified the vulnerability of agricultural value chains, and the sector needs support from de-risking financial instruments such as EDFI AgriFI. The InfoPoint session aims to showcase the achievements of the facility and share insights on the use of EU blending instruments to unlock, accelerate and leverage sustainable agriculture finance. The event will be the opportunity to present case studies, their impact on local benficiaries and to launch the recently signed Country Windows for ACP, Sri Lanka and Tanzania.
