Agricultural Value Chain Financing Kenya: assessment of potential opportunities for growth

This resource appears in:

INSPIRED International has a quantitative analysis tool for evaluating value chains and recommending financing strategies and financial products. INSPIRED was engaged b to use this tool to analyse Kenya’s dairy value chain in four principal dairy producing geographies of Kabete, Nyeri, Nakuru and Eldoret. The outcome of this research was a strong interest on the part of several of Kenya’s financial institutions to finance opportunities identified using this numbers based approach. Both KARF and Financial Sector Deepening Kenya (FSD) felt encouraged to extend this analysis to other commodities based on the strong interest shown by the financiers in this approach.
