According to FMO's website, this project provides financing to agRIF to support smallholder farmers and rural micro, small and medium-sized enterprises (MSMEs). The agRIF fund will be making senior debt and equity investments in financial intermediaries (MFIs, banks, NBFIs) with a strong commitment to serving agricultural and rural markets, as well as debt investments directly into producer organizations and SMEs in the agriculture value chain.
"agRIF is the successor fund of Rural Impulse Fund I and Rural Impulse Fund II, all of which make investments in financial inclusion for the rural sector. agRIF takes this model one step further by specifically targeting the agricultural sector and smallholder farmers, as well as rural micro-entrepreneurs. In addition to the equity investments targeted by the fund, agRIF provides debt investments in agricultural SMEs and agricultural focused financial intermediaries. agRIF is managed by Incofin Investment Management."
