Word count: 783
Agriculture is known to be a large contributor to the African economy, employing half of its population. That is why it is one of the key focus areas of the African Development Bank. Agriculture also ignites the imagination of financial institutions around the world. Very importantly, in this neo-SFDR world, farmers also have “green fingers”, and to twist this analogy, much of the industry falls into the remit of impact investing and/or green financing.
