Theory of Change

SEFAA’s theory of change is that significant poverty alleviation can be achieved by improving the productivity of smallholder farmers (SHFs) by providing financing to viable Social Agricultural Enterprises (SAEs) providing products and services to SHFs or rural MSMEs.

The fund seeks to achieve the desired impact of significant poverty reduction in sub-Saharan Africa by deploying growth capital and technical assistance (TA) funding to profitable or commercially viable SAEs in the agri-sector that can or do generate a positive, sustainable and measurable impact at a meaningful scale on SHFs in SEFAA’s target countries.
