Additional Information

This research was funded by the CCAFS programme


This study ‘Demand for and experiences with financial products and services’ describes and discusses the results of a survey to provide a first insight into the financial services that the smallholder farmers from climate smart villages use and to explore how these are related to climate smart agricultural technologies & practices. The study is one of three preliminary studies of a multi-year international research project (2016-2022) on ‘Business models, incentives and innovative finance for scaling climate smart agriculture (CSA)’. The knowledge and insights developed are used to further support ongoing and emerging climate smart projects in which CCAFS is involved. A survey was conducted to identify smallholder farmers and the small to medium enterprises (in different stages of the value chain) and their demand for and experiences with financial products and services. There were 148 respondents from 24 villages from Latin America, West Africa, East Africa, Southeast Asia and South Asia. The targeted number of female respondents (50%) was nog met in all regions, for example in India where the role of female farmers in irrigated agriculture would be limited. A limitation to the results is that in different regions a different number of villages was involved, making it more difficult to generalise results. Sometimes it would prove challenging to make conclusions about the reasoning behind the answers. The study is about adoption climate smart agriculture, but does not define the extent of adoption. ..
