Financing Agricultural Value Chains in Africa: Focus on Pineapples, Cashews and Cocoa in Ghana
This study is part of a series of four country case studies on agricultural value chain finance in Africa aiming to examine access to finance for agriculture, with a view to identifying strategies and tactics which will improve that access for commercially-oriented agriculture. These recommendations will be used to inform policy development by government and development agencies, both at country level but also for the continent overall.
This study reviews the agricultural finance environment in Ghana, with particular reference to the pineapples, cashews and cocoa value chains. Accompanying the value-chain analysis is a review of both the agricultural and financial sectors in Ghana, with a performance dashboard for each.
