Agricultural Lending


This training, composed of eight lessons, is aimed at loan officers in financial institutions which wish to engage in agricultural finance and manage this in such a way as to avoid loan losses and an increase in non-performing assets. It follows the loan cycle from application, to appraisal, disbursement and recovery, giving examples of how to deal specifically with farm households. The final lesson is aimed at more senior personnel who have responsibility for setting overall lending policies and managing the whole loan portfolio.
