This project was designed to replace the Kosovo Food and Veterinary Agency’s (KFVA) multiple redundant and inefficient veterinary and phytosanitary systems with a new, unified system that will ensure better information exchange and interception of animal and plant products. 

The outcome of the activity will have a positive impact on international trade, specifically regarding easier and safer movement of goods with animal and plant origin.

USAID developed a loan portfolio guarantee to increase access to finance for Kosovo’s micro, small, and medium enterprises in agricultural value chains, as well as business startups in all sectors.  These guarantees give banks the incentive to lend to business startups and agribusinesses, especially young entrepreneurs and farmers, who would otherwise find it difficult or impossible to obtain financing, in order to demonstrate the potential profitability in these sectors.  USAID is also working to assist Kosovo’s financial sector to introduce new products tailored to meet the specific needs of start-ups and agricultural businesses.
