EfD recently launched a thematic funding window to identify and support social enterprises working in agriculture that require grant funding to initiate or scale up their operations. Some design features of the thematic funding window are provided below:
- Sector: We are interested in opportunities involved in agriculture, with a particular emphasis on those opportunities that utilise technology to improve agricultural productivity.
- Country focus: Kenya, Rwanda, Tanzania and Uganda.
- Size of grants to be provided: Grants are available through the funding window from a minimum value of $20,000 to a maximum value of $60,000.
Population group: Opportunities should target improved livelihoods for smallholder farmers.
The funding window has now closed to new opportunities and the selected grantees will be announced shortly.
