Thanks to this investment in the fund MiiMOSA Transition #1, small and medium-sized agricultural enterprises will benefit from the means to complete their environment-friendly transformation and climate transition.”

Florian BRETON, CEO & Founder of MiiMOSA: “Starting our own private debt fund marks the beginning of a new phase in the expansion of MiiMOSA and its mission: accelerating the agricultural transition in order to meet the challenges of the 21st century. This is the first time in the history of European agriculture that a fund like this is created to finance agricultural operations. We are extremely happy to collaborate with the European Investment Fund for this unprecedented launch.”
