Project scope and objective
IDB Invest is considering an investment of up to US$8 million in Produce Pay Inc. (the “Company”). The Company develops, manages, and operates a proprietary agri-fintech platform that provides fruits and vegetables growers with financing, marketplace, and market intelligence. The innovative and disruptive business model facilitates access to working capital financing to mostly small and medium growers in Latin America exporting their produce to the United States, while its marketplace and market insights services help them create new business opportunities with fair and transparent commercial conditions.
The impact of this project was highlighted on our 2021 Annual Report.
The Company will utilize the proceeds of the new equity round to enhance its online platform and operating capacity in order to expand further its operations in Latin America. As the Company grows, it expects to positively impact growers enabling them to scale up their businesses.
