Inter-Africa Frontiers International Group is a social impact investor and project developer operating exclusively in the agriculture sector in Africa. Our mission – to reduce poverty and improve food security – is underpinned by our belief that the best route out of poverty for the majority of Africa's rural poor is the development of profitable agriculture with strong links to markets.
We invest in socially-responsible businesses, operating across the supply chain, which have the potential to make a major positive social impact in their communities. In addition to direct investment, we provide on-the-ground technical support and specialist agricultural advice to management teams.
Currently working in six African countries, and with plans to expand into a further four, we are raising agricultural productivity, increasing incomes, creating employment opportunities and, in doing so, helping to reduce food insecurity, hunger and under-nutrition in rural communities.
