Agricultural Leasing Market Scoping Study for Sub-Saharan Africa

Topic :

This scoping study applies a market systems approach to agricultural equipment leasing in sub-Saharan Africa in order to capture a holistic view of how the leasing market currently works. The study has analysed core market functions (supply and demand), as well as supporting market functions and the policy environment. The analysis has included both primary and secondary research, notably literature reviews and targeted interviews with key informants. A country selection framework has examined the breadth of the financial sector, relative importance of agriculture in the overall economy, total employment provided by the agriculture sector, presence of major agricultural equipment suppliers and the presence of leasing companies. It has led to a closer analysis of the following countries: Ethiopia, Ghana, Kenya, Mozambique, Nigeria, Tanzania, Uganda and Zambia. Additional references have been made to South Sudan and Liberia, offering general insights on agricultural leasing in a selection of fragile and conflict-affected states (FCAS), as well as to Rwanda.
