Advice organisation

We advise on agriculture and business improvement in developing countries. Agriterra clients are of various types: we work with international organisations, UN organisations, donors, (foreign) governments, banks, investors and businesses.

Our target client group, the farmers we want to strengthen, can be found in ambitious agricultural cooperatives and organisations.


We employ strict entry and exit criteria. To become clients, cooperatives must:

  • Have at least 1,000 members
  • Be able to show a track record in business
  • Have realistic ambitions for growth
  • Recognise the need for finance (working capital and term loans)
  • Show readiness for change.

Entry criteria for farmers’ organisations are slightly different. We consider them suitable if they:

  • Are national and/or supranational organisations with a relevant track record on lobby and advocacy
  • Are 2nd or 3rd tier (i.e., lower-level) organisations with relevant track record of providing services to members
  • Are ready for change
  • Have realistic development ambitions.
