4 H OW CAN WE WORK TOGETHER ? What does AgDevCo Ghana offer? AgDevCo Ghana provides long term loans (3-8 years) typically around $500,000-$2,000,000 in 1-4 disbursements. These loans are in USD at a 10% USD interest rate. AgDevCo structures each loan in order to adjust to the company’s cash flow, and may consider grace period on principal investment. AgDevCo can also provide some working capital financing to support the long term loan. What companies is AgDevCo looking for? AgDevCo is looking for commercially viable local businesses with strong social impact and who are excited to work closely with us. These businesses need to have a proven business model (ideally already at break-even) which they are searching to scale up with our funding. AgDevCo partners closely with businesses to enhance core business areas such as agronomy best practices, financial management, corporate governance, operations and supply chain, and environmental and social impact. AgDevCo Due Diligence process Given the comparatively high risk of AgDevCo’s investments and our search for good partners, our Due Diligence is extensive and usually takes 4-6 months, depending on the information available from the potential borrower. Due Diligence covers the following aspects: a) senior management and shareholders; b) market analysis and competition; c) company operations and supply chain; d) financial analysis and projections; e) legal due diligence; f) proposed project analysis; and g) environmental and social impact.
