Demand Assessment for SME Financing in Vietnam’s Coffee Industry

at Root Capital in Remote

About the Job

In 2014, we expanded our operations to serve producer cooperatives and private enterprises in Southeast Asia. Having already disbursed more than 15 million USD to a network of nine borrowers, we are now exploring the possibility of scaling up our lending activities in the region. Ultimately, our aim is to accelerate the growth of agricultural SMEs in the country and, in turn, boost income among smallholder farmers.

Root Capital is currently seeking highly qualified candidates to conduct an in-depth scoping of Vietnam’s coffee sector. We will prioritize candidates with demonstrated experience within Vietnam’s coffee sector as well as those with local networks.

Root Capital

Root Capital invests in the growth of agricultural enterprises so they can transform rural communities. These businesses purchase crops such as coffee, cocoa, or grains from smallholder farmers. With growth, they become engines of impact that can raise incomes, create jobs, empower women and young people, sustain peace and preserve vulnerable ecosystems.

Root Capital supplies these businesses with vital resources: access to capital, trade and technical partners, financial training and conservation practices. We work in hard-to-serve geographies where others don’t. To date, we’ve distributed $1.2 billion to improve the lives of six million people in farming communities.
