CEO Vicki Escarra Blogs about Agriculture Finance for Huffington Post
Africa has enough arable land to feed a population of 2.5 billion—yet millions of its 1 billion people go hungry every day.
But at Opportunity International, we believe equipping farmers in Africa with the funding and market connections to stabilize their production is key to breaking the cycle of hunger.
It’s a message Opportunity International CEO Vicki Escarra underscored in her most recent Huffington Post blog about the link between agriculture finance and food security.
The blog post spotlighted our partnership with the Chicago Council of Global Affairs to present philanthropist and entrepreneur Howard G. Buffett Oct. 28 in Chicago for a discussion about his recent book, 40 Chances: Finding Hope in a Hungry World.
Buffett will be joined by his son, Howard W. Buffett, as they share their insights on the challenge of global hunger and the ways anyone can make a difference.
