21- 23
SAFIN Annual Plenary Meeting 2022

Monday, November 21, 2022 to Wednesday, November 23, 2022

An in-person and online event alongside the 7th World Congress on Rural and Agricultural Finance!
On-site venue: Headquarters of the Fideicomisos Instituidos en Relación con la Agricultura (FIRA) in Morelia, Mexico.

As the world struggles to address the worst food crisis in generations, agri-SMEs that play key roles across agricultural value chains are facing unprecedented pressure. Increased operation costs, lower profit margins, and higher interest rates are among the realities faced by many agri-SMEs following the compounding effects of the war in Ukraine, the COVID-19 pandemic and climate change. Now, more than ever, is the time for the agri-SME finance community to work in concert towards an inclusive ecosystem where agri-SMEs can affordably access the appropriate capital they need to weather these turbulent times.

The SAFIN Annual Plenary Meeting 2022 is an opportunity for our members and other players in agri-SME finance to discuss the current state and future of agri-SME finance under the theme “Opportunity in an evolving landscape”. Every year, the Plenary offers time and space for SAFIN members and invited guests to share information about new projects and plans, pitch new initiatives, discuss new research and connect with their next impact partners.

Please note:

Sessions on Day 1 are open only to SAFIN members.
