Dear RFILC members,

Welcome to the new Rural Finance and Investment Learning Center (RFILC) website and newsletter!

We would like to highlight two main novelties that you can explore while navigating your new platform. First, we now have a 4th library pillar that is dedicated to all aspects related to agricultural investments. Second, the platform offers new features to signed members including the ability to perform a custom site search, to suggest new content and to receive recommendations tailored to your member profile information. The language is set by default to be English. Please, set your preferred newsletter language by clicking here.

We are introducing the new web platform with many changes, we appreciate your understanding if you encounter any remaining “bugs”.  Please inform us of any problem if it occurs so we can address it.

We wish you a pleasant exploration of our new RFILC website and its new features!
