Agribusiness is also a priority for IFC in Europe and Central Asia, where countries such as Ukraine offer tremendous potential to become leading producers and exporters of agricultural products. IFC supports the production and processing of food in the region, with a particular focus on farmers and small agribusiness companies. We invest in leading food producers to help them expand production and improve product quality, directly reaching 159,794 farmers in the fiscal year 2016. We provided local banks with targeted finance to be on-lent to farmers and agricultural SMEs, reaching an additional 307,150 farmers, and provided advisory services to farmers and companies on food safety and international best practices.
