SEAF established our SEAF India Agribusiness International Fund (SIAIF) in 2010 to target promising SMEs across thirty-three identified sub- sectors of Indias agribusiness value chain. At the time of the funds establishment, 40% of our investments worldwide had been in the food and agribusiness sector and we had worked for 6 years with Kotak Mahindra Bank in India on the India Growth Fund. Bolstered by our local team of experts in agribusiness finance, SEAF will apply our global agribusiness experience, along with deep local sector knowledge, to generate substantial sustainable growth in dynamic Indian agribusinesses. India has a large agrarian economy and is one of the biggest producers of agricultural commodities in the world. The country boasts the worlds second largest amount of arable land and there is growing domestic demand for an increased quantity and variety in consumed food. Supported by a favorable policy environment and the demand-push impact of a young consumer class with a growing disposable income, India offers significant investment opportunities in the food and agribusiness sector and is poised to become a global player in these industries. Despite its promise, the agribusiness sector has historically been plagued by a lack of available growth capital and Indias rural, and predominately agricultural, population continues to be relatively unproductive and poor_with more than 500 million rural Indians living on less than $1.30 a day. The increased demand and favorable policy context, combined with the substantial opportunities to achieve higher productivity, value addition, technological improvements, and waste reduction, presents exceptionally high growth prospects and financial and development returns for the fund.
