AAF CASE STUDIES
Five years of the AAF’s technical assistance facility – 2017
The Technical Assistance Facility (TAF) has a mandate to increase economic and physical access to food for low-income Africans by providing technical assistance to the portfolio companies of the African Agriculture Fund (AAF). The AAF is a private equity fund created in response to the food security challenge across the continent, financed by African, European and US development finance institutions, and private investors. It is comprised of two funds; the AAF and a subsidiary Small and Medium Enterprise (SME) Fund. As TAF enters its fifth year, this report reflects on the progress of 42 projects implemented to date through technical assistance to ten AAF portfolio companies.
2014 Development Impact Report – Driving change
This AAF impact document aims to showcase the work undertaken by Phatisa and the AAF, which goes beyond the standards of environmental, social and governance we set for our portfolio companies. Through its work with the AAF, Phatisa has coined a new asset class, ‘Development Equity’, which combines the development finance spirit of the majority of our investors with the principles of commercial private equity investment, demonstrating that the two disciplines can be mutually inclusive.

FERONIA: TRANSFORMING AGRICULTURE IN AFRICA, DRC
Palm oil is one of the world’s most important vegetable oils, used in countless food and non-food products. The historic PHC plantations company was once one of the largest palm oil producers in the world. With the investment of capital, energy and world-class science and expertise, it is our objective to return the company to, and ultimately surpass, its former prominence.
PHC has been in operation since 1911 and is one of the largest palm oil producers in Africa. Its operations span 107,892 hectares in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Yaligimba is located in Equatenur adjacent to the Congo River.
