Why Seed Capital?
Why Agri Seed Capital?
We provide access to finance for under-served smallholder farmers, in particular youth grain producers. This is achieved through financial service solutions where working and infrastructure capital is raised to finance select farmers who have management capacity in terms of land, skills and experience. The working capital in the form of production loans, bridging finance, short-term credit, equity injection or sale and lease back transactions is mainly for cultivating under-utilized land, mechanization efforts, maximizing production capacity and procuring high quality input seed and fertilizer.
