Innovative Agricultural SME Finance Models
IFC produced this report on behalf of the G20 Global Partnership for Financial Inclusion. The report identifies innovations that can help bankers in developing countries to finance agricultural small and medium enterprises. The report highlights the most promising examples of innovative financing, risk mitigation and distribution models drawn from a stocktaking exercise of 100 global cases. This report primarily addresses private sector financial institutions in emerging markets and is designed to complement the November 2011 IFC report “Scaling Up Access to Finance for Agricultural SMEs – Policy Review and Recommendations,” which focused on the policy framework conducive to agricultural SME finance.
