The Smallholder and Agri-SME Finance and Investment Network (SAFIN)
The Smallholder and Agri-SME Finance and Investment Network (SAFIN) is an inclusive partnership of actors working in different parts of the global ecosystem for agricultural and related small and medium enterprise (SME) finance and investment.
SAFIN partners recognize that smallholder farmers and other agri-SMEs are key investors in the rural economy and in food systems. The partners also understand the challenges they face, particularly in accessing finance for investment, and share a common vision of more inclusive and sustainable agri-finance ecosystems, from the global to the local levels. Ultimately, SAFIN partners share a commitment to work together towards this vision through the network, which functions as a pre-competitive space to join forces around strategic collaboration opportunities, share knowledge and support each other.
