Investing across the agribusiness value chain to enhance food security, support sustainability and promoting inclusive development.
Over the coming decades, the global population will increase to over 9 billion with fewer resources available. FMO has made Agribusiness a priority to help meet this challenge by investing across the value chain - enhancing food security, supporting sustainability and promoting inclusive development.
Since 2012, FMO has built up a highly diverse and financially healthy portfolio in Agribusiness, food & water (AFW) of 837 million euros across Latin America, Eastern Europe, Asia and sub-Saharan Africa.
We offer various forms of financing, including long-term loans, equity, mezzanine and working capital finance. We tailor our funding package to meet the changing needs of your agribusiness company. Whenever possible we also provide our funding in local currencies.
Finally, we are also a strategic finance partner for Dutch businesses that develop projects or initiate business activities in emerging markets.
