Financing Africa’s Internal & External Agriculture Value Chain

August 28,2018, Nairobi. Understanding the agri-value chain underpins formulation of lending strategies as well as improves the overall effectiveness of those providing and requiring agricultural financing. There can be two ways of looking at it;-

  • Internal value chain finance ie when an input supplier provides credit to a farmer, or when a lead firm advances funds to a market intermediary.
  • External value chain finance-when a bank issues a loan to farmers based on a contract with a trusted buyer or a warehouse receipt from a recognized storage facility

This is one of the topics at the Africa Agri-Finance Forum scheduled on  September 25 – 26  2018 in Nairobi under  the  theme “Inclusive Finance for the Agricultural Value Chain”, a theme informed by the overarching direction to transform product offerings  and  revolutionize the lack of capital investment in the sector
