Incofin is pleased to announce the third edition of its Impact Newsletter.
We are convinced that in order to build sustainable businesses, managing social performance the same way we manage financial performance makes good business sense. This enables institutions to better understand the needs of their clients and to be more results and outcomes oriented, leading to increased business performance.
Incofin recently financed a successful eco-mill project for a Small Producer Organization (SPO) in Colombia through 2 of its funds; the agRIF and the Fairtrade Access Fund. The eco-mill project is a large-scale wet mill plant with state-of-the-art, water efficient machinery from market leading suppliers, that includes its own water treatment facility.
As organizations based on communal ownership, smallholder producer cooperatives are deeply rooted in the principle of democratic participation, which ensures that the cooperative’s activities benefit the community as a whole. Incofin, advisor to the FAF, considers good corporate governance fundamental to a cooperative’s ability to achieve its mission and to ensure its long-term sustainability.
