Improving access to credit for smallholder farmers in Niger to implement climate-resilient and low-emission agriculture.

Niger

Titre : Improving access to credit for smallholder farmers in Niger to implement climate-resilient and low-emission agriculture.

Pays : Niger

Date d’approbation : 14 Nov 2019

Projets et Programmes : SAP012

Descriptif
Current predictions show that agricultural production in Niger is estimated to drop by 20 percent, threatening the livelihoods of 85 percent of Nigerians whose employment depends on agriculture. Investments in climate-resilient and low-emission agriculture are perceived as high risk, especially by the local financial sector.

The project incentivises the participation of the private sector by engaging with commercial banks and microfinance institutions. It will provide much desired financial support to smallholder farmers by increasing access to credit in tandem with technical assistance and capacity building.
