Project Objective

Access to finance at affordable rates is a systemic constraint facing smallholders and agricultural SMEs across the continent. Resolving it demands unprecedented collaboration between partners. In response, Grow Africa has convened a Working Group on Finance, comprised of leading experts from across banks, agri-businesses, NGOs and international bodies. The group acts as a think-tank to support the development of finance solutions and connect potential implementation partners, in response to the challenges faced by Grow Africa partner companies.

The working group is open to members from:

  • Financial service providers
  • Technical advisory service companies
  • NGOs
  • Development organisations
