“I saw an opportunity to empower farmers and ranchers in Colombia.”

- Year selected
Fabio creates financing solutions that develop the agricultural sector in Colombia. His company, SFA CEBAR, offers a variety of financial products that empower farmers and ranchers in two ways: 1) by leveraging their cattle or land as assets in order to raise capital; or 2) by earning profits by harvesting land or livestock that is owned by investors or lenders. SFA CEBAR has created a portfolio of six products, including a successful cattle leasing program and the first private equity fund for cattle farming in Colombia. Through partnerships with Colombia’s leading financial institutions, SFA CEBAR has raised more than US$500 million in debt and equity for Colombian agribusiness, a sector that represents more than 10% of Colombia’s GDP.
Endeavor and SFA Cebar
In 2010, Fabio worked with Endeavor Colombia to evaluate his business strategy and create a 3-year plan through a Financial and Strategic Lab. Endeavor Colombia organized an Endeavor Day specifically for CEBAR, in which the company’s employees participated in various workshops.
