Donor Funded Projects
Farmer Groups & Associations
CDI uses own funds, grants and sometimes borrowed funds, to start a project within its core activity areas, attract participants to the project, structure the project, solicit investments and contributions from others (e.g. impact investors, donor agencies, equity and venture capital funds, development finance and commercial credits); and delivers on the goals of the project.
As a social enterprise, CDI generates its revenues by charging between10-20% mark-up on the value of the project, for project management services, which covers cost of designing, structuring, staffing, implementing and reporting on operations and results, coordinating and delivering on the goals of the project and managing the partnerships associated with the project. Projects may be Public-Private Partnerships, and multi-year with many partners. Projects will have clear exit strategies and have sustainability built into the design. CDI’s operations will extend to other Africa countries and soon will become global.
