Economies across the developing world, and particularly in the SADC region, rely heavily on agriculture for most of their economic activity. By promoting greater access to financial services we focus on ensuring that small scale farmers are empowered to participate in the agricultural economy. Services such as credit and insurance are made available and innovations that bring rural communities into the mainstream of agricultural production and agri-business value chains are surfaced.
Our work seeks to further financial and economic inclusion for the poor of the SADC region. The work is implemented in individual countries as well as on a regional basis to support finance and economic integration on the region. Selected thematic areas support our mission.
