Investment Criteria

We invest in agribusinesses which are capable of delivering
a financial return and scalable social impact.

We will consider investments in primary agriculture or processing for crops, livestock and fisheries, excluding tobacco.

We are willing to support early-stage businesses (e.g. with less than five years’ operating history) if there is a proven business model and a strong management team. We do not consider investments below $250,000 unless there is potential for rapid growth.  For larger investments, we require a full business plan and complete financial operating history.

We are able to make direct investments in any of the eight countries in which AgDevCo currently operates (Ghana, Malawi, Mozambique, Rwanda, Sierra Leone, Tanzania, Uganda and Zambia). We can consider investment outside of these countries in partnership with established businesses that have a regional presence and a proven capability to operate on the ground.

We require all potential investees to be compliant with all applicable local and international laws, and to demonstrate a willingness to adopt the highest environmental, social and governance standards.

 

 

 

We believe we can make more impact by looking for new ways to tackle poverty in the regions where we work.
