Programme Overview:

Agricultural value chain actors need access to finance to grow their businesses and better attain efficiency and effectiveness. Micro Small and medium Scale enterprises (MSMEs) who add value to the agricultural produce need finance to increase their production capacity. By leveraging relationships with their suppliers and buyers, smallholders can increase their financial attractiveness to financial institutions. This can lead to development of commercially attractive financial services matched to the needs of smallholders and MSMEs within the value chain. Resource persons for this e-course have been drawn from various sectors such as finance, agriculture, commodity exchanges, and academics with a deep breadth of knowledge and experience in value chain analysis.

The delivery of the course is also unique in terms of its contents and coverage.
