The ZADT established its agricultural value chain financing  structure after recognizing the pivotal role of access to finance in the recovery of the agricultural sector in Zimbabwe. It had also been realized that there was a shortage of appropriately priced and structured credit instruments in the country's financial markets. The ZADT and its partners are therefore constantly engaged in raising and availing appropriately priced capital to promote social development. The ultimate purpose of the ZADT funding is to contribute to the recovery and improvement of the smallholder farming sector in Zimbabwe, leading to increased incomes and food security for rural households.
