The partnership would cover financing from primary production of raw materials and sustaining the processing industries to exportation of the produce.

The Managing Director of the bank, Ifie Sekibo, said that the partnership is important because it will help the bank leverage its balance sheet to make loans and credit available at very low interest rates to commercially viable agricultural projects that have been packaged and fully de-risked.
