CARMet Case Study 03: Verqor

May 27, 2024

Impact Investment Advances Inclusive Finance for Climate-Smart Agriculture

Verqor connects farmers in Mexico with vital financing, inputs, and buyers using a digital interface and by managing payments. Farmers in Mexico face the risk of drought and flooding due to climate change, which has a direct impact on their livelihoods and productivity. The tools that Verqor offers — credit, insurance, inputs, and contracts with buyers — work together to improve farmers' profits and help them manage the impacts of climate change. The company has committed to measuring specific KPIs that reflect these priorities while closing a $7.5 million funding round. Verqor's mission is grounded in poverty and dignified work, and their KPIs speak to the very priorities that matter to CIFAR Alliance members: financial access, digital literacy, revenue growth, regenerative agriculture, and nutrient density.


In this case study, we outline how the company promotes climate adaptation and resilience, as well as how their metrics inform progress beyond financial returns.
