The AECF has approved funding to more than 250 projects in 23 African countries. AECF competitions are targeted at specific economic sectors including agribusiness, renewable energy, adaptation to climate change and rural information and financial services, and at specific regions and countries (including East Africa, and fragile states). About 57% of the businesses in the AECF portfolio are in the agribusiness sector.

To get a better understanding of individual grantee business projects supported by competition, region or focus area use the AECF Project Selection tool under the Projects section, and view some of our Grantee Stories.
