2022 has been the year with the highest number of projects seeking CFC financial support ever, with well over 500 applications received. Although a record 13 new investments were approved by the CFC's Executive Board, this is still only a fraction of what our valued applicants wish us to invest in.

Another highlight in 2022 was to initiate the process of launching our Agricultural Commodities Transformation (ACT) Fund, formerly referred to as Commodity Impact Investment Facility (CIIF), a new fund aimed at boosting our drive for a technology enabled transformation in the agri-commodity sector globally.
