In 2020, our focus has been on new activities which are aligned with the CFC’s vision of the role of commodities as the foundation of the economic development for the poor. We continue to target critical weaknesses along the value chains affecting the smallholder producers, which enables us to achieve visible results with maximum efficiency. This also helps us to prioritize innovative projects with high development impact and replicability as well as financial sustainability. Given our work in a financially high-risk SMEs/smallholders communities, CFC always remain on the lookout for external support so that in can continue to invest in communities that others find too risky to invest.
