DATES: August 2010 - December 2014
In July 2010, a 100-million-dollar USAID grant to Afghanistan’s Ministry of Agriculture, Irrigation and Livestock (MAIL) established the Agricultural Development Fund (ADF) to provide credit to small commercial farmers and agribusinesses. This grant also launched a technical assistance effort under a 50-million-dollar Agricultural Credit Enhancement (ACE) project. This project manages ADF lending and supports value chains in the agricultural sector, especially those engaged in the production, processing and export of high-value crops. The ADF channels credit through financial and non-financial institutions.
