On the right road — keep it up!
We found that AgDevCo performed well while operating in a difficult environment. Our findings confirmed that the organisation is providing investment finance to companies that probably couldn’t find it elsewhere, and offering financing in ways that worked well for the agribusinesses receiving AgDevCo’s support.
We also found that efforts to find opportunities to support women farmers and agribusiness employees are underway and progressing well. However, ways could be found to mainstream opportunities for women more fully into decision-making about which investments to take forward.
DFID was extremely satisfied with Wasafiri’s review, both for the quality of findings, and the way in which it was managed. It came at an important time — new resources en-route to the Commonwealth Development Coorporation from DFID, could, in turn, make their way to AgDevCo to significantly expand the work.
