Inclusive Finance in Agricultural Value Chain (INCLUSIF) project aims to increase financial inclusion of smallholders and agrifood Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) in Mali. It has two expected outcomes: (i) access by smallholders and their organizations to suitable financial services is improved; and (ii) producers’ organizations develop profitable and sustainable productive partnerships with the private sector and financial systems.
INCLUSIF has three main components:
Component 1: Development of rural financial services. Its expected effect is the access of small producers and their organizations to appropriate financial services is improved. Its implementation will have an impact in rural areas where it will help increase financial inclusion from the current 20% to 35% in 2024.
Component 2: Productive investments in value chains. It aims to allow producer organizations composed mainly of small producers supported in component 1, develop profitable and sustainable productive partnerships with the private sector and financial systems.
Component 3: Coordination, monitoring and evaluation and knowledge management. It aims to carry all the mechanisms for technical planning and operational coordination, administrative and fiduciary management, monitoring and evaluation, communication and capitalization.
