Financing Pathways to Living Income
June 29, 2020 @ 9:30 am - 11:00 am EDT
Living Income requires multiple levers to be addressed by multiples actors. One determining factor that cuts across all of these is whether farmers are able to access proper financial services that allow them to invest in their farms to improve productivity, to lower production costs and household expenses and to diversify their incomes. Accessing proper financing is key to tackle multiple challenges linked with smallholder farming and achieving living incomes.
Join us in an exciting LICOP webinar where IDH will be moderating a session on “Financing Pathways to Living Income” that will be unpacking the following key questions:
- How to reduce costs of financial services to smallholder farmers?
- How to reach more farmers with better services?
This session will highlight specific tools, partnerships and approaches used among a wide range of actors directly involved in facilitating access to finance to smallholder farmers including global commercial banks (Rabobank), local banks (Banque Atlantique in Cote d’Ivoire), exporters (Barry Callebaut), micro-finance organisations (Advans), government institutions (Conseil du Café Cacao), cooperative members and special funds that look for innovative ways to mobilise different levels of investment such as the IDH Farmfit Fund.
