Voxtra East Africa Agribusiness Fund invests growth capital in commercially viable - but capital-constrained - agribusinesses in East Africa that reach out to smallholder farmers.

The enterprises that the Fund invests in provide improved inputs, processing capacity or market access to smallholder farmers.
