Value chain finance is basic for the success of a specific value chain. Value chain finance is important in order for businesses to meet their market demand by maintaining, extending their activities or invest in new market alternatives. Value chain finance also contributes to the increased competitiveness of an economic sector by helping an industry expand and compete more effectively. It has a long term impact on the overall development of the country. However, there is lack of adequate financing within the agriculture chain. For this reason and to respond to the need for enhancing agricultural value chain finance, it is important to equip MFI practitioners on the skills and knowledge of value chain finance. The training resource person will be drawn from India and Ethiopia.
Venue: AEMFI/EIFTRI Training Hall. Date: End of April (exact dates to be announced soon)
