THE ENTERPRISE ZAMBIA CHALLENGE FUND 2021 (Cycle 3)

Announcing the third call for applications! The EU funded Enterprise Zambia Challenge Fund just opened the third call for grant applications to support businesses of smallholders in Zambia. Does your agribusiness require financial support?

The ENTERPRISE Zambia Challenge Fund is a European Union initiative targeted at Zambian small and medium enterprises (SMEs) that support productive and market-integrated smallholder agriculture. ENTERPRISE Zambia Challenge Fund supports the achievement of the EU’s Farm to Fork Strategy, one of the cornerstones of the European Green Deal, and the EU Biodiversity Strategy 2030 by funding business investments that improve the sustainability of agro-food systems.

Self Help Africa, with Imani Development, are the fund managers for ENTERPRISE Zambia Challenge Fund, a five-year agribusiness support initiative that will invest €25.9m in the sector over the next five years (2020 – 2025). This project is also supported by Zambia’s Ministry of Agriculture, Ministry of Fisheries and Livestock and the National Authorising Office. The project is part of the EU’s ‘Support to the Sustainable Commercialisation of Zambia’s Smallholder Farmers Programme’.

Our aim is to contribute to improvements in the capacity of smallholder farmers/fish-farmers to practice environmentally sustainable and climate-smart agriculture as a business in inclusive value chains. The Challenge Fund is implemented in parallel with a European Investment Bank (EIB) facility provided to a local bank.
