Our role

AgDevCo has provided both debt and equity financing, most of which has been used to establish a state-of-the-art maize mill and develop an outgrower programme. ECA is able to offer a reliable market and fair prices by securing off-take agreements and linking farmers with high-volume market players. AgDevCo has helped to achieve a guaranteed market for higher-priced maize and has introduced sustainable farming practices.
