Ukraine is the world’s fourth largest exporter of grain and top exporter of sunflower oil. The country’s agriculture sector is a major driver of the economy, employing nearly a quarter of the workforce. The USAID AgroInvest project supported Ukraine’s agriculture industry, improving access to finance and facilitating the creation of market infrastructure for small- and medium-scale producers. The project brought an increase in agricultural investment and boosted a significant portion of Ukraine’s markets, benefiting the country’s economy. AgroInvest also strengthened cooperative development and producer organizations and helped to make taxes more investment friendly.
