Investment Fund for “Country Products”
For those living in the Diaspora they can find it difficult to buy the “country products” they like, be it fruit (soursop, baobab fruit, etc.), vegetables (cassava, sweet potatoes), flours (millet flour, corn flour), meats (agoutis, turtles), spices (chilli pepper, nététou), drinks (palm wine, bissap), hair products (afro combs, products nappy), body care products (shea butter, coconut oil), etc. Very often, there are only Chinese traders who sell these products. Headed in Luxembourg, the Investment Fund for “Country Products” aims to bring together investors in the 28 European countries, in connection with the African Development Bank, to finance small African farmers, and to ensure an outlet in Europe for the products they grow.
