According to DFC documents:
The Project is expected to have a highly developmental impact in DFCeligible countries in Latin America and Africa through the provision of credit to farmer MSMEs, including directly to producer and labor organizations (including agricultural cooperatives), traders and processors, and indirectly through microfinance institutions focused on agriculture. Farmer MSMEs account for most farms and produce much of the food in the project countries, while struggling to access markets and credit. The Borrower will continue to focus on financing farmers that have attained certification under an array of fair trade or other production standards. The Borrower provides technical assistance through dedicated funding and staff resources.

ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF THE UNITED STATES INTERNATIONAL DEVELOPMENT FINANCE CORPORATION (DFC)
The Office of Accountability is an independent office that addresses complaints about environmental or social issues related to DFC-supported projects. The office provides communities an opportunity to have concerns independently reviewed and addressed. If you submit a complaint to the Office of Accountability, it may assist you by either seeking to address your problems by facilitating a problem solving dialogue between you and those implementing the project and/or investigating whether the DFC complied with its policies to prevent environmental, social, human rights, and labor harms.
