Now available on line! Four case studies on credit guarantee funds for agriculture
This publication (available in .pdf only) is an in-depth analysis of different models of guarantee system. An assessment of these cases, together with a review of the global industry of agricultural guarantee systems, was published as "Credit guarantee systems for agriculture and rural enterprise development". The four case studies in this document provide the reader with a more detailed description of how these individual programmes have worked over time. Three of the programmes are among the largest and longest standing agricultural guarantee funds in the world, and have had both successful and difficult experiences as they evolve over time. The fourth case, from Estonia, shows how a small, efficient guarantee fund can operate profitably year after year.
