A worker for BrazAfric, a social enterprise that provides agricultural tools and machinery to farmers, inventories supplies in the company’s warehouse in Kenya. Many farmers who produce much of the food on the continent often can’t afford basic equipment. Supported by Grassroots Business Fund, an OPIC client that received a loan in 2011, BrazAfric is helping farmers with productivity improvement services and purchasing equipment with a special emphasis on solutions that enhance energy and environmental conservation. BrazAfric's customers include co-ops that reach 69,000 low income farmers throughout East Africa.
