The Agricultural Business Initiative (aBi) Development’s stall at the just concluded Harvest Money Expo 2023 held at the Kololo Ceremonial Grounds in Kampala attracted over 500 visitors in the 3 days of the exhibition. The exhibition started on Friday, February 10 and ended on February 12.
The visitors to the stall asked a number of questions ranging from financing for agriculture, available funding opportunities, the Green Challenge Fund and the upcoming Green Finance Fund. The visitors also asked about becoming implementing partners of aBi, the available opportunities and the expansion of the value chains supported by aBi.
Presently, aBi supports the seven value chains of poultry, cereals, dairy, pulses, oilseeds, coffee and horticulture.
aBi Development also supported the expo with a sponsorship package of UGX120m. This is the fourth time that aBi has sponsored the Expo.
Speaking at a meeting between exhibitors and expo officials, the outgoing aBi Development CEO said the Harvest Money campaign was in line with aBi’s overall objective of ensuring a competitive, profitable and sustainable agribusiness sector in Uganda.
“It is fully aligned to the RIO markers on education, training and public awareness related to climate change, which is informing our investments.
“aBi and our partners are fostering a pathway that supports smarter, more sustainable, and equitable growth of Uganda’s agriculture and agribusiness sector through green financing/ investments (under the green challenge fund),” he added.
