AGDEVCO empowers smallholder farmers and improves their productivity and profits by connecting them to higher value markets and agribusiness. They also expand commercial banking to farmers, which in turn further develops the financial services sector. Farmers will access more profitable markets through their partnerships with agribusinesses, their creditworthiness will improve and they will have access to a range of financial services. This approach enables financial service providers (FSP’s) to reach farmers more cost-effectively at central buying and selling points, for example at agribusiness locations. Agribusinesses will benefit from assured supplies of good quality farm produce and their growth will generate rural employment.
