Recently, Koen van Seijen started a podcast series on transition finance in regenerative agriculture. It triggered my thinking, does anyone know of any good examples of transition finance aiding farmers in their journey towards regenerative forms of agriculture?
In the introduction he says: “many farmers are ready to speed up their regenerative transition (…)this is where transition finance is key. A local bank loan often isn’t feasible due to the short duration, lack of flexibility and the farmers’ lack of collateral. Furthermore, there is a lack of how much equity a farmer is willing or able to give way.”
