Rabobank and FMO are organizing a round table event on “Creating Shared Value Along the Food Supply Chain in Africa”. This high-level meeting for key players in the African agribusiness sector is organized in collaboration with Arise , a leading African investment company, and will be held on 11-12 June 2018 in Nairobi, Kenya.
The one-and-a-half-day event is a unique opportunity, bringing together business and banking executives from various agribusiness companies across Africa to share and exchange best practices in supply chain development and innovative farmer financing. It is further designed to showcase cutting-edge Climate Smart Agribusiness (CSA) models, AgTech trends and finance models that could help create a more resilient agribusiness sector in Sub-Saharan Africa.
Key topics are: How to finance finance smallholder farmers and what banks can do to make this work, how agribusiness companies themselves are stepping into this void, and why farmer finance must be an integral part of a broader array of services to farmers in Sub-Saharan Africa.
