Head Product Management
The agricultural sector is of central economic importance, especially in developing countries. Investments in producers’ and trade organizations along the entire value chain facilitate the growth of economically and ecologically sustainable agriculture. responsAbility offers fair trade companies both short-term pre-export financing to bridge seasonal liquidity shortfalls and to generate higher turnover as well as long-term financing for expansion projects to increase product quality and revenue.
The Fund reports number of farmers reached and the number of farmers of fair trade oriented institutions.
