    Financing the Farming of the Future

    According to the World Bank, 78 percent of the world’s poor are rural poor, and many of them are farmers.

Fair trade lending has been an important movement in the agriculture sector, and has led to the creation of critical jobs and economic activity. But how can we learn from pioneer investors and encourage capital to address the significant gaps in financing for innovations in the value chains for locally consumed crops?
