Female farmers in Kenya

The AgriFI Kenya Challenge Fund (AKCF), part of the wider AgriFI Kenya programme, has launched its first call for proposals. The fund provides financial support to agri-enterprises to contribute to improvements in the capacity of smallholder farmers/pastoralists to practice environmentally sustainable and climate-smart agriculture as a business in inclusive value chains. 


With the first call for proposals, AKCF aims to award EUR 6 million to 15 projects, with an average grant of EUR 375,000 per project. Applicants can apply for grants from EUR 200,000 to EUR 1,000,0000, which can cover a maximum of 50% of the total value of the proposal. Applicants must be for-profit entities, incorporated in Kenya and have at least three years of uninterrupted operations. Refer to the AgriFI Kenya Challenge Fund page for further information on the tender programme.
