Access to finance

For many farmer organisations (FOs), accessing the right finance is still a challenge. The Access to Finance (A2F) Working Group aims to learn and disseminate lessons on how to increase the levels of professionalism of farmer orginisations and agri-SMEs so they are seen as reliable customers for financial service providers. This requires a common understanding between financial service providers, farmer organisations and AMEA members on what ‘bankable’ means and how risks are shared during the process of acquiring finance. The Working Group develops strategic partnerships with external stakeholders such as finance providers, financial service provider networks and bridging organisations to collaborate, learn and improve the current A2F landscape.
