Small Agro Business Loan

Overview:

The AgGrandize Global small business fund provides start-up or working capital loans to small scale locally owned businesses operating at critical points along the agriculture supply chain. Access to business capital is a big challenge in underdeveloped countries where the banking system is not set up to offer these kinds of loans. The agriculture industry is capital intensive, and access to working capital is a key to long-term growth and success. Partnering to start and develop local businesses is an important way to make a lasting impact.
