Invest for impact
We invest in the growth of agricultural enterprises that work with smallholder farmers in Africa, Asia and Latin America. Enterprises whose credit needs are to big for microfinance and too small or risky for commercial banks. By offering access to finance the Rabo Rural Fund enables agricultural businesses to finance the purchase, processing and sale of their products.
Types of investment
We support agribusiness with the following instruments and typically provide loans ranging from about $200,000 to $3 million.
Generate positive impact
We aim to contribute to sustainable economic development, a better income for smallholder farmers, creating jobs in viable rural communities and food security. By lending to agricultural SMEs and producer organizations, who, in turn, serve thousands of smallholder farmers.
How we make a difference
We are active in 15 developing countries and emerging markets in Africa, Asia and Latin America. With our investments we unlock opportunities for agricultural business and smallholder farmers. These examples highlight the impact of our work.
