Rabobank Foundation invests in the self-sufficiency of organisations in Africa, Asia and Latin America. This helps the organisations to achieve their goals of offering small-scale farmers access to financing, savings opportunities, knowledge and new markets.
Focus on cooperatives
That’s why the foundation is keen to work with farmer cooperatives. We help savings and credit cooperatives and producer organisations – coffee or dairy cooperatives, for example – to professionalise and work more efficiently. That way they can better help their members and become self-reliant in the longer term.
Our added value
Doing what we’re good at, that’s our motto. As a cooperative food & agri bank we know all about cooperatives, banking and the agricultural sector. We deploy this expertise to offer enhanced opportunities to smallholders and entrepreneurs in developing countries. Thanks to our extensive networks, we’re able to reach out to our target groups and give them effective support.
