A Roadmap for Making Inclusive Finance a Driving Force for Rural Development and Food Security
Over the years, Développement international Desjardins (DID) has carried out dozens of rural finance technical support projects with numerous partners in highly diversified environments. Based on these observations, DID issued a roadmap designed to guide its action as well as that of its partners and funding agencies in order to increase agricultural yields, associated revenues, and the level of agricultural and financial knowledge among the actors in the system.
This roadmap uses a sector approach aimed at strengthening the overall agricultural finance system. Experience shows, however, that there is no single solution that applies to all situations. Instead, the roadmap indicates the desirable intervention parameters that are likely to have an organizing and sustainable effect in relation to the level of development of the agricultural sector under consideration.
