The Challenges

In Sierra Leone agriculture accounts for 50% of GDP and 75% of jobs. Sadly, the sector remains in its infancy with less than 15% of the country’s 5.4 million hectares of arable land used being used productively. The sector is plagued by challenges including inadequate rural financial services, limited irrigation, and vacuums of technical expertise, R&D and value-addition.

Our approach

In 2018 AgDevCo secured funding from DFID SL to pursue a project development strategy aimed at identifying opportunities with high-quality operating partners that have the opportunity to reach scale and attract international investment from Agdevco and other third-party investors.
