With the support of the EU’s European Neighbourhood Programme for Agriculture and Rural Development (ENPARD), Agence Française de Développement (AFD) is implementing the Finance & Extension & Cooperative Development Project for Georgian Farmers (FinExCoop Georgia). The primary objectives of the Project are to improve access to finance for small-scale semi-commercial farms and agricultural cooperatives and to provide guidance, incentives and support to targeted farmers and cooperatives.
The Project specifically aims to (i) provide agro-loans to underfinanced farmers and agricultural cooperatives, (ii) make investments beyond working capital to boost the development of targeted beneficiaries; (iii) provide tailored economic, financial and potentially technical guidance to targeted beneficiaries in order to strengthen their creditworthiness and competitiveness, as well as provide demand-driven technical support to local financial institutions willing to increase their farmers’ and agricultural cooperatives’ portfolios.
