Who is our client

The client is Engro Foundation in partnership with Seed Ventures, a Pakistani VC Fund.

Funding objective

The objective is to create a ‘Silage Social Enterprise’ (SSE) in the animal feed sector that will improve smallholder farmers’ access to high nutrition feed while making the business more inclusive. The social enterprise will be for-profit and engage in the production, marketing and distribution of silage, which is considered an affordable and highly nutritious substitute fodder during the feed shortage periods twice per year.

Why we fund this project

This project is aligned with FMO’s Seed MASSIF strategy, because the Silage Social Enterprise set up by Engro Foundation is an innovative market based approach to improve smallholder farmers’ livelihoods and increase food security in rural areas in Pakistan.
