These partnerships will be between commercial firms and other actors, which may include but not limited to anchor buyers, corporate entities, financial institutions (FIs), large-scale agricultural investors, technology firms, digital/mobile money platforms, agricultural alliances, smallholders, and micro-entrepreneurs. Palladium will provide technical assistance to structure these partnerships, help identify potential partners and structure financing solutions, provide co-funding and oversee the implementation of these new ways to lend at scale to the underserved customer base profitably.
