Rabobank Sustainable Agriculture Guarantee Fund

Rabobank Group is an international financial services provider operating on the basis of cooperative principles. The Rabobank Group aspires to help individuals and businesses participate fully and independently in economic activities, providing their customers with the most modern financial services required for successful participation in today’s economy. Of particular note from this Bank for FARMD users is the Rabobank Sustainable Agriculture Guarantee Fund, which is an initiative that aims to enhance access of agricultural cooperatives (or companies buying from small producers) to local financial services. This initiative is of particular interest to the FARMD and the AgRisk Community because it is a way to help address financial risks faced by smallholder farmers. Rabobank’s Sustainable Agriculture Guarantee Fund does so by assisting these farmers to give them greater ability to purchase, process, and trade agricultural commodities in the international market on commercial and sustainable terms.
