Our role

AgDevCo is supporting AC Matama through a $500,000 long-term loan that finances the development of an irrigation scheme. This allows the company to grow additional crops during the dry season and diversify its offer, while securing food supplies to local markets. Additionally, AgDevCo is providing guidance on the design and implementation of an outgrower scheme that started in 2015.
