Bridging Finance And Innovation To Advance A Green Revolution In Africa

Siena Lending Group Closes Credit Facility With Wells Fargo Capital Finance

The Dutch Agriculture Development and Trading Company, for example, developed a technology that brings a mobile cassava processing plant to villages and enables farmers in Mozambique to process their roots into cassava cakes that can be stored for up to two years opening new markets that were once limited because of root spoilage during transportation. In another example, The Rockefeller Foundation-supported Horn of Africa Risk Transfer for Adaptation project, an integrated risk management scheme developed by the Relief Society of Tigray and Oxfam America, helps Ethiopian farmers strengthen their food and income security through a combination of improved resource management, crop insurance, microcredit, and savings. The poorest farmers are eligible to pay for insurance with their labour through resilience-building projects in their communities. In addition to financing, catalytic innovations for growth are also emerging, including leveraging mobile phone technology to better share and disseminate information, structuring agricultural jobs as rural entrepreneurial enterprises to attract younger workers, and addressing gender inequities that hinder the income generation of women farmers.
