DFC investments in agriculture help protect the world’s most vulnerable populations and mitigate the impacts of growing food insecurity and malnutrition.

Smallholder farmers are critical to meeting growing food demand, yet they chronically lack access to credit and other financial tools. With millions of people on the brink of famine, expanding access to food and helping protect against future food crises remains a key priority for DFC.

DFC is mobilizing financing for smallholder farmers, rural communities, and the agricultural supply chain. Our work helps reduce food insecurity and increase agricultural productivity, yield, and farmer income.
