We’re Recognized in USDA blog

Saturday, January 26th, 2013

United States Department of Agriculture writes about FAIM in their blog.      Planting Seeds of Prosperity 

I want to make note that FAIM has not received any grant funding from any USDA program. We are funded by some social investors and, soon to join our group, Overseas Private Investment Corporation (OPIC is a U.S.development finance institution). FAIM was awarded funding from Africa Enterprise Challenge Fund.
