This case study outlines an investment into Angkor Harvest - a mango production and processing company in Cambodia - through project development assistance of Infunde Development and investment from InfraCo Asia, a company of the Private Infrastructure Development Group (PIDG).

Watch the video summary.
Through Angkor Harvest’s processing facility and other infrastructure, high quality mangoes can be processed in Cambodia and directly exported to the global market, cutting out the intermediary and increasing farmers’ profit share and income. The key learning emerging from this investment is that strong engagement of stakeholders – community and government – helps achieve impact targets and improves evaluation strategies.
