Objective/Purpose of Assignment:
The Project will look at limited access to finance for farmers/producers from 2 perspectives: lack of skills/knowledge (of risks in agriculture and availability of relevant tools) in FIs and low bankability of farmers/producers due to lack of capacity and lack of avenues to improve this capacity. To address this failure on the scale of the selected FIs and supply chains, the Project will work with both FIs and supply chains (aggregators, producers, other participants) to improve their capacity and created strong linkages between all.
