With each other
Collaboration is at the heart of everything we do. Rabo Rural Fund is Rabo Foundation owned and part of the Rabobank Group and brings talented people together to advance our mission of building a better world. For one, Rabo Foundation and its partners are committed to fighting poverty worldwide. We focus on empowering economically disadvantaged people in rural areas through microfinancing and sustainable supply chain development.

Rabo Rural Fund supports farming cooperatives and small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in developing countries. Agribusinesses and cooperatives that have outgrown donations and microcredit but are not yet eligible for standard bank loans often have great difficulty in attracting financing. Rabo Rural Fund aims to plug this gap and helps agribusinesses to pre-finance purchase, processing and product sales. We finance sustainable value chains in coffee, cocoa, honey, cotton, spices, nuts, peppers, soya and canned and dried vegetables. In addition, we finance fixed assets, such as the extension of production lines.

As a Credit Risk Officer, you will join and work with a global and diverse team that consists of 55 colleagues in a variety of roles and that work together from different countries in four continents. From the Netherlands to Peru.
