Alterfin is a Belgian financial cooperative created in 1994 to invest in smallholder farming in developing countries via microfinance institutions, small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) and producers' organisations.

Technical assistance

The technical assistance will target Alterfin’s investees, namely microfinance institutions and organisations active in smallholder sustainable agriculture in Africa, Latin America and Asia. The TA will help develop such organisations, and their institutional strengthening but also to broaden and deepen their outreach in line with Alterfin’s mission and values.
