The Finance Alliance for Sustainable Trade (FAST) and the Inter-American Institute for Cooperation on Agriculture (IICA) are pleased to host a webinar on “Borderless financing – Access and eXchange for impact investment and Sustainability (AXiiS)” which is an innovative online matchmaking platform that pairs agricultural small and medium enterprises (SMEs) with Financial Service Providers (FSPs) and financial products and services tailored to their needs.
AXiiS was recently launched by the Finance Alliance for Sustainable Trade (FAST) an international non-profit organization. By partnering with FSPs and other stakeholders, FAST uses tools and services to facilitate access to finance for agriculture and forestry SMEs in emergent economies in Africa, Latin America and the Caribbean. FAST’s training, analytics, and matchmaking services provide impact-investing solutions and capacity building for their stakeholders.
