Netafim Agricultural Financing Agency Pvt. Ltd. (NAFA) was promoted by Netafim Group, Israel to finance the stakeholders in micro-irrigation value chain. Netafim invented and pioneered the adoption of drip irrigation system across the world with the mission to promote a global change in the way water is used in agriculture.
In India, Netafim is present for more than two decades, extending benefits of drip irrigation technology to farmers across the country, covering more than 18 lakhs acres of farms of more than 8.5 lakhs farmers.
One of the major hurdles in adoption, of micro irrigation by farmers, was their access to finance, hence Netafim decided to provide financial solutions to the stakeholders in micro irrigation value chain. NAFA, the Non-Banking Finance Company (NBFC) of Netafim Group, received the RBI license and commenced operations in March’2013.
