Why we invest

Small and medium agricultural businesses play an essential role in getting Africa’s smallholder farmers out of poverty – they are a major source of seasonal employment and connect farmers to markets.  But they often don’t have access to the right capital to grow as most major lenders find these agri-businesses risky and difficult to invest in. Aceli addresses this financing gap – they help high-impact agri-businesses become investment ready, and provide lenders with targeted subsidies to reduce their risk and encourage more loans. Successful agri-businesses can drive stronger rural economies and better livelihoods for smallholder farmers.
