‘We are passionate about transforming the agricultural landscape of Pakistan and helping our farmers grow, and towards this end, the obsolete farming techniques and low yields of agricultural produce prevalent in Pakistan were an opportunity worth exploring. Agriculture sector contributes more that 21% to GDP, and improving yields by even small increments can have enormous effect on the lives and livelihoods of our farmers. We aim to leverage the Engro brand and provide Agribusiness Advisory Services to local farmers by implementing an end-to-end closed loop solution, from sowing to selling of produce with timed interventions at different stages of the crop cycle. We believe this project will help improve our farmer’s yield and will provide cascading benefits to the economy of the country. We appreciate Bank Alfalah’s lead in providing financing to the farmers in our program. Such structured financing, as compared to the informal financing currently available to our farmers, will allow farmers to reduce their input cost and improve their returns. This should encourage other financial institutions to provide similar financing to farmers and grow the agri-lending space.’
