Value Chain Financing: How agro‐enterprises can serve as alternate aggregation points for delivering financial services to smallholder farmers

This Brief builds on a report titled Catalyzing Smallholder Agricultural Finance, which presents a series of  pathways for financing, including lending to farmers aggregated into producer groups, financing through integrated multinational buyer supply chains, and building direct‐to‐farmer financing models. This briefing elaborates on the concept of “alternate aggregation” to explore value chain financing models that serve non aggregated farmers through the agro-enterprises that interact with those farmers.
