Pathways to Prosperity

Explore insights from our 2019 State of the Sector report with ISF Advisors

How has the rural and agricultural finance sector evolved over the past three years?

The last three years have seen a rapid acceleration in technology-driven innovation, which has powered changes in existing rural finance models, enabled providers to develop new service delivery models, and facilitated the bundling of services in new ways. We have also seen a more diverse influx of service and capital providers, which has reshaped the market.

But despite this progress, there remains a large, persistent gap in smallholder and agricultural SME finance. 

Our new Pathways to Prosperity report presents new, dynamic frameworks for accelerating progress towards closing the $170 billion smallholder financing gap and achieving inclusive rural transformation.
