Agri-SME Finance: Navigating Volatility in the Wake of the War in Ukraine

The war in Ukraine began in February 2022, and evidence of its impact on global food systems continues to grow. Yet, much uncertainty remains around how it is affecting agri-SMEs and the institutions that finance them. Join this interactive workshop to hear from agri-SMEs, local financial service providers and global development actors about the key challenges and unexpected opportunities on the ground emerging from recent economic shocks.

The event will feature experiences from three women business owners from the most affected regions, as well as speakers from IFAD, the World Bank Group, the Islamic Development Bank, the U.S. Agency for International Development, Equity Bank, and others.
