How we work in Africa

In Africa, we encourage local entrepreneurship as much as possible. By supporting cooperatives and companies that create value locally and regionally, we help the farmers benefit from higher incomes. But we also finance local small- and medium-sized enterprises in the food and agricultural sector, because they strengthen the value chain – which also strengthens the farmers.
