Sources of funds for agricultural lending


The book describes the possibilities for financing agricultural loans. It explains the impact of using various funding sources on financial institutions.
The most relevant aspects examined in the study are the following:

• What is the impact of the various sources of funds on the performance of financial institutions?
• What are the specific risks of using certain funding sources for agricultural lending?
• What is the impact of the liability structure on the governance and autonomy of financial institutions?

Suggestions are also made on how to improve the access to less explored sources and how to manage funds effectively with the goal of providing the necessary financial resources for agricultural investments.
