A Coalition of Smallholder Finance Practitioners, will be announcing its
formation and formal launch of activities at the 18th Microcredit Summit on

representatives from some of the largest and most innovative organisations
engaged in smallholder finance, including Agora Microfinance, BRAC, Juhudi
Kilimo, One Acre Fund and Opportunity International.
VisionFund International, we will collaborate with our fellow practitioners to
increase the quality and availability of financial services tailored to meet
the unique needs of smallholder farmers.
forward, along with coalition members, we will develop and adopt common
principles to enhance financial services accessible to smallholder farmers.
Through outreach to key sector stakeholders, our hope is to influence the
availability and structure of wholesale financing to attract appropriate
investment and better support the growth of smallholder financial services.
Along with the other coalition members, we will develop commercial and
operational partnerships that drive product development and innovation in
smallholder finance and create stronger value chains for farmers.
