FINAS 2024

Financing Agriculture Sustainably Conference
Positioning Kenya for Resilient Agricultural Enterprises

About the conference

The Financing Agriculture Sustainably Conference (FINAS 2024) brings together actors in the agricultural sector to engage on financing the sector and also on the appropriate models for funding agricultural activities. The landscape conversations will bring out challenges that will inform subsequent discussions with financing solution providers and beneficiaries. The discussions will include designing financing solutions to ensure relevance to the wide range of beneficiaries, and de-risking approaches for injecting capital such as blended financing.
