Mobilizing Agricultural Finance

Toward a Common Language Between Lenders and Agri-SMEs in Sub-Saharan Africa

This report presents the context and value of a common language, identifies bottlenecks in lenders’ strategies and processes in assessing the bankability of agri-SMEs, and details the bankability metrics themselves. It concludes with calls to action for key stakeholders to not only adopt the metrics but also nudge others and ignite a systemic change to unlock access to finance for agri-SMEs.
