Funding for the coming agricultural season will receive a boost of US$10 million expected to be raised through agro-bills by ZB Financial Holdings.

ZB is further strengthening its support for the agricultural sector and the funding will be used to access inputs and critical infrastructure.

Group Chief Executive Mr Ron Mutandagayi says such investment is meant to ensure improved agricultural production in line with the vision towards becoming food self-sufficient and stimulating economic growth.

Zimbabwe recorded a bumper maize harvest this year and expectations are that production will improve in the forthcoming season.

The agriculture sector has received intensive support from the government and the private sector with funding standing at more than half a billion dollars for the coming season.
