The European Solidarity Financing Fund for Africa (ESFFA) is a multi-donor instrument. It is the first instrument specialized in supporting rural microfinance organizations and producers' organizations active in the fields of fair trade and organic products in Africa. It aims to meet the microfinance needs of poor rural households and support small-scale agricultural investments throughout Africa.
The ESFFA fund aims to finance rural microfinance institutions and producers' organizations in Africa in local currency. Technical assistance will also be provided to help these institutions build their capacities in the fields of management, financial management, and the development of new products.
