Making finance work for small holders farmers: input, impact & implications by Titi Yakubu, Excutive Director (DEC)
Agriculture is the major economic activity and employs the majority of the people in low income countries. Globally, three quarter of the world’s poor that live in rural areas 80% of them depend on agriculture as their main source of income (IFC2011). They play a vital role in increasing food supplies. Despite the contributions of the smaller holder farmers, they tend to have little or no access to formal credits which limits their capacities to invest in the technologies and inputs they need to increase their yields and income and reduce poverty.
