Improving Agribusiness

AgriProFocus Rwanda seeks to support farmers to practice agriculture as a business, access innovative business development services and maximise profits. The availability of affordable and accessible credit is critical for the success of the agricultural sector. Credit enables agri- entrepreneurs to mobilise the resources required to support production and marketing activities, which are key to successful entrepreneurship. The growing interest in small scale farmers by financial institutions such as banks and MFIs has increased the number of financial products available. However, few farmers know of these financial and insurance products thus limiting their uptake and utilization.

Moreover, several agribusiness companies, cooperatives and farmers have various innovations, products and services they would like to show to farmers and buyers and thus increase their portfolio of sales. Increasing market linkages and visibility of agribusiness products will enhance pr

Geodata for Inclusive Finance and Food: let's connect!

On 16 February 2017, NpM Platform for Inclusive Finance, the Netherlands Space Office and Rabobank Foundation organised a conference on Geodata for Inclusive Finance and Food in The Netherlands. One of the important outcomes was that different stakeholders should be better connected.  

Recent developments in technological applications based on satellite data provide useful information to increase outreach of financial services to rural areas and for smallholder farmers. The Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs committed EUR 60 million for the development of applications based on geodata for the purpose of agriculture.

Early evidence suggests that these applications offer great promise to produce a higher and more stable crop supply of increased quality. By this, the risk profile of smallholder farmers reduces which is an

Regional AgriProFocus Country Coordinators meeting - November 2016

On 28-30 November 2016, three AgriProFocus country coordinators (Rwanda, DR Congo & Burundi) met in Kigali to discuss progress in their countries and look for possibilities of organizing some cross country activities among the 3 country networks in 2017. Among the topics discussed, ‘’Youth’’ and ‘’Potato’’ emerged as possible regional programs the 3 countries can focus on.


Engagement of youth in agribusiness is currently high on the agenda of development cooperation and the network approach applied in Rwanda in 2016 turned out very effective. The AgriProFocus approach regarding Linking and Learning really came out as added value. There is a need for the young of the countries to exchange experiences, evaluate the start of their businesses, hear successes and challenges on a regional level.
