The African Rural and Agricultural Credit Association (AFRACA) in collaboration with the World Bank Group will host a webinar to review and share insights on the Bank’s recent publication on ‘Assessment of Long-term Finance Providers for Small and Medium Agribusinesses: Stocktaking, Lessons, and Case Studies’. The webinar will bring together different stakeholders to review the case studies highlighted in the book and for partners to share in-depth insights on Long term financing in Agriculture.
The study presents a review of the major players and types of LT financing on the supply side. The assessment provides a general synopsis of the LT situation from different parts of the developing world drawing lessons from a broad range of financial service providers including Central Banks, Commercial and Development Banks as well as Microfinance Institutions.
AFRACA members provided vital contribution in the publication of the book authored by Toshiaki Ono and Mr. Calvin Miller. The Case studies of LT finance highlighted from AFRACA member institutions include: Bank of Uganda, Afriland First Bank (Cameroon); Bank of Industry (Nigeria), Centenary Bank (Uganda), Opportunity Bank (Ghana), Juhudi Kilimo (Kenya) and Farm Credit System among others.
