DescriptionThe conference participants affirmed in their testimonies and analyses that microfinance can play an important role in agricultural finance and is capable of mitigating the many challenges associated with the sector. To do so, several conditions must be met:
  • Organization of the agricultural sector;
  • Professionalization of the various actors, at all levels;
  • A supply of diversified and well-adapted financial services;
  • Access to non-financial services that promote agricultural development;
  • MFI access to medium- and long-term refinancing, at affordable rates;
  • Diversification of regions and types of activities financed, keeping in mind the primary objective of financing rural and agricultural sectors;
  • A regulatory framework adapted to the challenges of agricultural and rural finance.
