Who We Are
We're a funding mechanism that channels funds to stakeholders in different ways, adapted to their need: to countries through their governments; to private sector enterprises and agribusiness through innovative financing packages; and to farmer organizations through creative pilot projects.
We ensure that funding is used effectively, efficiently, and sustainably by targeting projects with the greatest potential for impact. Through the Public Sector Window, we provide funds to projects that are developed and driven by recipient countries, and that are well aligned with country plans. Through the Private Sector Window, we provide financing packages for agribusiness. In 2016, we launched a new pilot Missing Middle Initiative (MMI) aimed at reaching smallholder farmers more directly.
