Financing and Funding Services

We specialize in providing financial solutions tailored to the specific needs of the agricultural sector. We offer a range of services to support farmers, agribusinesses, and other stakeholders in securing the necessary funds for their operations.

  1. Agriculture Financing and Funding Services act as intermediaries, linking agricultural stakeholders with financial institutions and lenders. We have established partnerships and networks with banks, credit unions, government agencies, and other financial entities that offer specialized agriculture financing options. Our services facilitate access to loans, lines of credit, and other financial products that can be used for various purposes such as farm expansion, purchasing equipment, working capital, or implementing sustainable farming practices.

Soul Agri Business Company Limited

It was a pleasure working with Vida Verde Limited (VVL) team in the design of our farming activities in Uganda. They did our land use plan from inception, hiring of staff and assistance in the cropping programs, pest and disease management and production to marketing of cotton, maize and soya beans. We started from zero to 5,000 acres with VVL and were weaned when our systems and operations were stable.
