Agriculture is still an important means of alleviating poverty, but shortage of finance can constrain its development. At the same time, agriculture is evolving towards a global system requiring high-quality, competitive products, and is organized in value chains which often exclude smallholders. This book describes how the various types of value chains are being used to strengthen and extend financial products and services to the agricultural sector. Case studies were conducted in Asia, Africa and Latin America in 2006-07 and in Eastern Europe and Central Asia in 2008. This book represents essential reading for agribusiness leaders and technical staff, bankers and cooperative leaders working in agriculture, NGO and microfinance development practitioners, researchers and policy makers.
