Root Capital serves agricultural businesses that connect smallholder farmers to world markets. When these businesses grow, they become engines of impact that transform their communities. They increase incomes, create jobs, preserve ecosystems, empower women and give young people the opportunity to lead. We are a community of unconventional problems solvers. We are humanitarians and environmentalists, philanthropists and investors, farmers and feminists.
Root Capital strives to have a positive social and environmental impact on rural businesses, families and communities – while maintaining a 100% repayment rate to our investors.
