Innovations in Rural and Agriculture Finance

Rural and agricultural finance innovations have significant potential to improve the livelihoods and food security of the poor. Although microfinance has been widely studied, a large knowledge gap still exists on the nuts and bolts of expanding access to rural and agricultural finance. Briefs on innovations in providing financial services to rural households have been collected in this “IFPRI’s 2020 Vision Initiative” document with the aim to narrow this knowledge gap. Also, case examples of successful rural and agricultural finance innovations in Africa, Asia and Latin America have been included in this collection.
