The Common Fund for Commodities (CFC) is an intergovernmental financial institution established within the framework of the United Nations with the objective of enhancing the socio-economic development of commodity producers and contribute to the development of society as a whole. In line with its market-oriented approach, the Fund concentrates on commodity development projects financed from its resources.
The CFC’s aim is to realize the potential of commodity production, processing, manufacturing, and trade for the benefit of the poor. CFC provides project financing for the project proposals submitted by its member governments, NGOs or private companies in the area of enhancing productivity, value addition and processing and market access for commodity products. For this, CFC invites 'Calls for Proposals' from time to time.
As a member of CFC and as a least developed country, with its economy dependent on commodity production, such as grains, lentils, tea, coffee, cardamom, Nepalese organisations and companies can benefit from these project financing opportunities from CFC.
