Growth capital at a critical point of scale

Acceso’s mission is to increase farmer incomes. By creating a seed-to-market model that was designed for buyers (not farmers!), Acceso ensures the availability of key off-take markets. At the same time, Acceso provides farmers with technical assistance, training, inputs, financing and processing services.

Why Rippleworks Invested:

USAID has made a significant commitment to Acceso’s growth and is ready to move resources. An unrestricted grant unlocks the potential of the USAID grant to support Acceso in reaching thousands more farmers in dramatically underserved areas.
