Our impact

Accelerating the transformation of rural Africa 

Through targeted investment and specialist support, we are creating jobs, linking smallholders with markets and establishing successful export businesses.

Benefitting people and planet

Ultimately, we will measure our success through the long-term transformational impact our investments make. By driving the development of new agro-industries and creating investable opportunities for the private sector, through an approach aligned with the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals, we will help accelerate the transformation of rural Africa to a thriving, commercial agriculture sector that benefits both people and planet.
