Why we invest

West African Rice Company (WARC) has a fresh take on a classic bundled solution for smallholders (training, inputs, finance, and markets). They make commercial agriculture easy, profitable and climate smart for smallholder farmers. WARC aggregate land, train farmers, and provide inputs as a service (planting, spraying, harvesting) to boost yields and keep soil healthy. They are also a commodity buyer, guaranteeing income to farmers. All farmers need to do is sign up – they’ll get higher income today and preserve their soil for the future.
