New Partner Spotlight: Root Capital
Root Capital invests in the growth of agricultural enterprises so they can transform rural communities. It seeks out enterprises whose credit needs are too big for microfinance and too small or risky for commercial banks and provides loans ranging from about $200,000 to $2 million specially tailored to harvest and sales cycles. To help businesses grow over the long-term, Root Capital mixes that financing with highly customized training to strengthen their financial management, governance, and agronomic capacity.
Guided by its recently completed strategic plan, over the next five years Root Capital is poised for future growth that will deepen its impact and grow its reach with the goal of building the bankability and resilience of agricultural enterprises in Africa, Latin America, and Indonesia. In order to accomplish its strategic goals and achieve increased impact, Root Capital has set out to increase its philanthropy.
Orr Group is excited to be partnering with Root Capital to develop a comprehensive fundraising plan to enable growth from $15 to $25 million over the next five years in addition to providing development capacity and support by serving as the organization’s interim Director of Individual Giving.
