Mandate & funders
AgriFI is an EU-funded blending facility aiming to unlock, accelerate and leverage investments with a value chain approach in developing countries, focusing on smallholder's inclusiveness and/or agri-business medium, small and micro enterprises (MSME).
AgriFI targets existing private sector enterprises working with smallholder farmers on financially, environmentally and socially sustainable projects with potential to scale.
It aims at supporting the “missing middle” companies focused on agriculture that need financing to grow but have difficulty obtaining financing from local commercial banks and international investors.
AgriFI will support the increase of yields at affordable rates and help raise farmer incomes. Increased farmer income and adherence to the highest environmental and social standards will support sustainable supply chains that create additional employment, improve food security and enhance environmental and social practices.
AgriFI is managed by the EDFI Management Company, an asset management company established by the 15 European DFIs, also managing other facilities such as ElectriFi.
