    ICCO and AUXFIN join forces to develop agricultural value chains and to boost digital financial inclusion in rural areas

    In order to support agribusiness activities in Burundi, ICCO COOPERATION and AUXFIN have decided to combine their efforts to jointly support the development and financing of value chains to promote the agricultural sector as a whole. ICCO and AUXFIN want to work together to strengthen the development of market-oriented agriculture in Burundi as the mandates of both organizations reflect complementarities.

    The partnership between ICCO and AUXFIN is part of contributing to the fight against food insecurity and poverty in rural areas through the development of agricultural value chains and access to financial services for farmers. The two organizations will rely on complementarities in their interventions with the populations of the rural world both for the development and for the financing of the agricultural value chains each in its area of specialization.
