The U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) mission in Côte d’Ivoire along with the USAID Development Credit Authority (DCA) and social investor Oikocredit today announced a new partnership to support agriculture in West Africa.

The three-year partnership will see USAID DCA provide a guarantee facility of up to US $ 24 million on loans that Oikocredit will provide in West Africa to small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), cooperatives and associations involved in export-oriented (regional and international) agricultural value chains.

Through the guarantee facility the risks of lending are shared and Oikocredit is able to provide more loans, which helps to extend access to finance for smallholder farmers of cashew, cereals, livestock, mango, shea and other agricultural value chains.

Investing in agriculture is one of the most effective ways of reducing rural poverty and improving food security. This partnership with USAID is an essential component of Oikocredit’s agriculture investment strategy in West Africa.
