On 22nd June, GroFin Kenya engaged over 30 entrepreneurs and business owners at the Sheraton Four Points Hotel in a morning workshop focused on Alternative Finance for Agribusiness and Food Processing Sectors.
With the help of a panel made up of GroFin investees comprising United Food Processors, GAEA Ltd. and Agrifilms, the GroFin Kenya team took the audience, comprising 33 non-GroFin attendees, through our Investment and Portfolio management process. The team also fielded potential clients’ questions and concerns that were mainly centered around investment readiness and the challenges they faced when applying for growth capital.
It may be noted that agribusiness is a sector of focus at GroFin, apart from other vital needs sectors such as education, healthcare, manufacturing and key services (water, energy and sanitation). It is our experience that funding such vital needs sectors helps us to reach out to more lives at the base of the pyramid and creates deeper impact in the communities where we operate.
