About us 01

Background

The Agribusiness Development Centre (ADC), was set up by the Rabobank Foundation and DFCU bank with the sole purpose of training Farmer-Based Organizations (FBOs) and Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) in Agribusiness.

 

ADC is a company limited by guarantee, together with the founding members, our main focus is on improving the sustainability of cooperatives through capacity building and providing technical assistance in the areas of cooperative governance, financial literacy, and financial management, access to markets and access to finance.

 

Successful farmer groups and SMEs in Agribusiness with a desire to grow should be given the opportunity to do so. We see promoting self-sufficiency as an effective tool to transform the Agricultural Sector in Uganda.
