The Rabobank Foundation is committed to improving the lives of underprivileged and disadvantaged groups of people in society by providing them with the opportunity to live full and independent lives. Rabobank has been financially supporting Akvo with a €500,000 loan since 2009. It has also collaborated in the financial engineering of some large Akvo programmes and Akvo has helped  Rabobank clients and contacts develop new strategies using Akvo’s technology and services. In 2013, Akvo became part of a Rabobank Foundation programme that aims to improve the lives of farmers in Sri Lanka.
