Kafalat Agriculture Programme Overview

Kafalat Agriculture is implemented in the framework of the ARDP (Agricultural and Rural Development Programme) funded by the European Union and executed by the Lebanese Ministry of Agriculture, which aims at financing activities related to the agriculture business in all its aspects.

This programme is co-financed by the EU and Kafalat SAL, and responds to special needs raised by activities of small scale agriculture and tree plantation.
