Smallholder and SME Investment Finance (SIF) Fund

The SIF will offer an investment opportunity for donors, DFIs, private sector foundations and investors that have expressed early interest in the concept and are seeking to reach IFAD’s target groups to improve production and productivity significantly. 

The SIF will leverage IFAD’s portfolio of public sector-funded programmes, its de-risking mechanisms through IFAD’s regular portfolio from replenishment fund, financial instruments, public- private producer partnership mechanism, and mobile information platform, blending opportunities with other partners, its smallholder organizations client base, and its field presence and retailing capacity, garnered over 40 years of work in rural development financing. The IFAD portfolio and de-risking mechanism is the main “pillar” of the Framework for Smallholder Agricultural Finance (SAFIN).
