FINANCING INCUBATION

Currently, there are  no funds that are designed to respond to the incubator / incubation needs.  Agribusiness to support Youth requires structured financing. AAIN works with partners to redesign how existing resources can be modelled for the benefit of agribusiness incubators and for impact, based on the establishment of an African Agribusiness Incubation Fund (AAIF).
